At the beginning of December, Zaporizhstal Iron and Steel Works handed over another batch of defensive ammunition from the Metinvest Group to the defenders of Ukraine. It is stated on the company’s website.

Military personnel of the National Guard, defending the Zaporizhzhia region, received 3,000 IV+ bulletproof vests and 250 Kevlar helmets.

“Modern military equipment will protect the lives of soldiers on the front line and help them perform tactical tasks more effectively,” the message says.

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation, within the framework of Rinat Akhmetov’s «Steel Front» military initiative, units of the National Guard of Ukraine have received more than 7,200 bulletproof vests and 1,400 protective helmets from Metinvest.

During the full-scale war, Metinvest directed more than UAH 1.4 billion to support the army and the military. The company provided the defenders of Ukraine with 150,000 body armors, as well as about 23,000 hard hats and helmets.

Most of the equipment is made from certified special steel produced by Metinvest, the rest is purchased abroad. In general, the company allocated UAH 2.1 billion to support the army, civilians and its employees.

As GMK Center reported earlier, In November 2022, the Kryvyi Rih enterprises of the Metinvest Group produced 12 modular shelters for the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU). Structures are assembled from corrugated steel according to an improved project, taking into account the needs of the military. Dimensions of each building: length – 6 m, and diameter more than 2 m.

The structure is quickly disassembled for transportation and moving to other positions. Specialists spend approximately 400 hours on the producing of one such shelter. In total, within the framework of the «Steel Front» military initiative, the company’s enterprises produced and handed over 40 modular shelters to the Ukrainian military.
