This support is essential as many of the troops have suffered losses of equipment and central supply can be slow and limited. Providing reliable vehicles increases the tactical mobility of the Ukrainian soldiers that is essential for surveillance, counter attacks, supply, evacuation and other operations.
This a fully private initiative where all parties are working for free – all funds raised for the initiative are
used to buy and deliver the equipment.
Quick and targeted deliveries with minimum overheads:
We have the Ukrainian consultants of Civitta (the largest independent management consultancy
in Central and Eastern Europe) working on the ground to gather the needs from various troops
(requests for cars and equipment).
These requests are sent to Estonia where our team members purchase and pack items for delivery.
We only buy requested items to avoid unnecessary spending.
We usually buy 5 to 10 vehicles for each delivery. Once completed, the delivery is being sent to
the Polish-Ukrainian border. Then the Ukrainian side bringis it to the final destination. We have experience with deliveries by trailer as well as by driving to the border ourselves.
The full cycle (from need identification to completion) takes about 1 week. We try to send
We typically seek to buy cars with price of around €5k (around 15 years of age, diesel, manual
transmission – Toyota, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Ford and Jeep are the typical brands). However, some cars we
have also got as donations. With technical inspection, repair, additional equipment and the delivery
the total price of the car is around € 8-10k.
If the delivery cost is not covered by donations our own team is financing the missing part so that delivery happens in any case and given regiment is getting much needed support. We get constant feedback and updates from Ukraine.
