The People’s Project activists have already this year made another delivery to the Mykolaiv-based Alpha – the Ukrainian version of SWAT. The Special Forces soldiers are trained specifically in complex anti-terrorism operations. The storming of buildings is part of that and needs to be efficiently and smoothly and often involves rappelling down a building’s exterior. So for both the soldier’s training and work, we presented them with new abseiling equipment. The volunteers who delivered the gear were even able to witness training first hand – a fascinating spectacle.
Besides this gear, the “spidermen” of Alpha were also presented with a raft of other equipment. The full list can be seen in the table below.
Now we are focusing on providing Alpha with much-needed drones to improve its surveillance capabilites, so please lend your support to the Five Quadcopters PC-1 project.
