Why it is important
The focus of this new project will be some outstanding combat units that The People’s Project has taken care of for some time. They have already proved themselves as brave, professional and highly effective warriors. About some the public knows a lot, some are less known, but they are the pride and hope of the Armed Forces and Security Service. We have long taken care of these units in various initiatives (Back to Fight!, First People’s Sniper, First People’s “Tourist”, First People’s Scout), so we can assume that their success is partially down to us.
Despite their successes in battle, the war, unfortunately, continues meaning as always they need the support of us and people in general.
79th Airmobile Brigade
The experience of the past year has proven the Armed Forces Command appreciates the professionalism and responsibility of the paratroopers 79th Airmobile Brigade. In all campaigns they have played the role of driving unit, and the paratrooper never let up. They have shown courage, patience, professionalism and heroism. In Krasnyi Lyman, Izvaryne, Donetsk Airport, and Debaltseve – this winged infantry was always at the center of the action. Within this project we plan to equip the reconnaissance division of second battalion and the first battalion.
Center of Special Operations Alpha
The Mykolaiv CSO "A" division, which we have been supporting, along with their remarkable performance and professionalism in the field of combat, have also demonstrated a conscientious and responsible attitude to all equipment and other gear we have provided them. We have helped them because in fact, they do a very important job – catch saboteurs, the coordinators and leaders of terrorists behind enemy lines and within Ukrainian controlled territory. Of the special operation conducted by "Alpha" we usually learn from the news, and do not routinely ask exactly who they are or how they operate. It is satisfying we can help real professionals.
Intelligence unit of the Naval Forces of Ukraine
Of the top-secret military intelligence unit of the Naval Forces of Ukraine, which we refer to as "Tourist" little is known. It is a disadvantage of the profession, as they say. About what they do, their name offers a clue. And who they are, no one is quite clear and once again this speaks about the professionalism of the military. The more they keep under wraps the better the result. They are not worth speculating about, we just need to accept them and help them protect our peace.
Where does the money go
In a period of relative truce, the role of intelligence units come to fore and in the calm before the storm they are key to knowing when and where that storm might hit. Now, thanks to our joint efforts, providing technical equipment to meet the needs of the intelligence units of the Navy, Alpha and 79th Brigade is significantly different from what it was a year ago. Nevertheless, we still have a lot of work to do. We do not close our eyes to a number of important factors and to the military we will provide everything necessary for the effective performance of combat missions.
