The President has thanked the Ukrainian Diaspora in the UAE for the financial support of the Ukrainian army. "Your activity is an example for every Ukrainian who lives abroad of how not to lose ties with Ukraine. You feel that it is our common business: make everything for Ukraine to win," Petro Poroshenko noted.
The night vision devices and clothing have been purchased and sent to the Ukrainian troops from the UAE with the support of the Ukrainian Diaspora.
