Why is it important?
In recent months Armed Forces of Ukraine have become one of the most consolidated armies in the world. Today Ukrainian reconnaissance deals with special operations behind enemy lines.
Military reconnaissance determines the effectiveness and weaknesses of the enemy during combat and provides its own forces with information for planning tactics in battle.
It is the reconnaissance who detects the position of the enemy’s artillery, tanks and anti-aircraft installations. But without special equipment the soldiers who undertake reconnaissance missions are in danger, risking coming under the enemy fire.
Where the money goes?
To obtain information of enemy positions without incurring losses is a typical task of reconnaissance. In most cases the enemy forces are detected during a battle.
Poorly equipped reconnaissance squads makes them an easy target for the enemy. Sometimes lack of radio sets forces soldiers to use mobile phones for coordination between units. It reduces greatly the chances of a successful operation.
We create this project to provide the next reconnaissance groups with all the items they need:
– 17th reconnaissance battalion;
– 54th reconnaissance battalion (4th troop);
– 43d reconnaissance battalion;
– Kulchitskiy Battalion;
Also for a special Alpha squad.
Alpha squad is a center of special operations of anti-terrorism protection, protection of criminal justice participants and public safety officers. On March 3 1990 the chief of the 7th department of the KGB of the USSR signed off on the creation the 10th squad "A" division in Kiev.
On June 23 1994 by decree of the President of Ukraine an anti-terrorist center of Security Service of Ukraine "Alpha" was formed. The name "Alpha" (KGB of USSR) is by accident. Earlier there was "Alpha" special forces in the USSR. Its name was limited to one letter "A", as "alpha" (the first letter of the Greek alphabet – Άλφα). It means to be first.
