Two new Airbus H125 helicopters, delivered under the agreement between the governments of Ukraine and France, arrived at the Kharkiv International Airport on January 13, Ukrinform writes.
“The helicopters join the fleet of the Kharkiv Separate Aviation Squadron of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine,” the Service informs.
As part of the implementation of the intergovernmental agreement with the French Republic and the implementation of the investment project of the Ministry of Internal Affairs to create a unified system of aviation security and civil protection, Ukraine should get 55 new models of aircraft. In particular, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine will receive 24 new helicopters.
As reported, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine adopted the first batch of helicopters under the Ukraine–France contract in January 2020.
