First of all, shelter is provided in the Donetsk direction – Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Pokrovsk
Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine, Metinvest Group has handed over 200 special mobile shelters produced at the company’s enterprises to Ukrainian military personnel in the hottest areas. This is stated in the Metinvest.Media’s press release.
The fighters dig these steel capsules into the ground, cover them with timber on top and get a reliable shelter that can withstand even fire from 152-mm shells.
«We have already handed over 200 shelters to the army. First of all, in the Donetsk direction, these are Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Pokrovsk. Also, our shelters work in the direction of Zaporizhzhia, and in the direction of Kherson, near Kryvyi Rih and further to Kherson – they were needed there when active hostilities and the liberation of the city took place,» said the operational director of the Group Oleksandr Myronenko.
Fighters highly appreciate these shelters, because they allow them to rest in comfortable conditions. There are places for sitting and weapons, drains for water and a small pot. Protective structures made of corrugated steel were developed by Metinvest together with the military and took into account all their wishes and recommendations.
