APU received a batch of BMP-1 from Europe, despite the restrictions


The state-owned company Ukrspetsexport, which is part of the structure of the Ukroboronprom concern, organized the delivery from abroad for the APU of 37 BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicles. The import of armored vehicles from the European Union to Ukraine occurred despite a set of restrictive measures introduced in the countries of origin and transit.


This was reported yesterday in the press service of Ukroboronprom.

The equipment was delivered to the country a week ahead of schedule. Since April 2, it has been undergoing a technical inspection.



Commenting on the supply of infantry fighting vehicles, the head of the Ukroboronprom concern, Aivaras Abromavichus, said that the APU units delivered to Ukraine would receive without delay:

The supplier and the Ministry of Defense maximally contributed to the implementation of this contract, which is important for the defense capability of the state.

It is known that Soviet-made BMP-1s purchased by Kiev were not previously used. They were in the warehouses of the former Warsaw Treaty member countries (the largest number in Poland) in conserved form. Before being sent to Ukraine, they underwent a complete overhaul, during which, if necessary, replacement of components and assemblies took place.

One of the advantages of this armored vehicle in the Armed Forces of Ukraine is considered to be the presence of a 73 mm caliber Grom gun in its arsenal, which is not subject to the restrictions established by the Minsk agreements. Does this mean that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are going to use this military equipment in the Donbass?

    ".... BMP-1 in the former ATS countries there were almost 5400 (in Poland and Czechoslovakia they were produced under a Soviet license), of which now about 1800 are part of the Armed Forces. About 1500 were sold, of which 375, acquired by Sweden from Germany, were returned to ... the Czech Republic. As a result, the number of cars of this type with an unclear fate exceeds 2500. Of course, there are also unaccounted for utilization, executions at firing ranges, sales to museums and private owners, but definitely no less than a thousand cars under any of these scenarios didn’t hit ....

              I read that Kuwaiti BMP-2s were sent to the Czech Republic according to one version for modernization work, and according to another, the Czech Republic would be only a transit point on the way to Ukraine.

                I will not be surprised, although these BMPs are valued more, respectively, and will be more expensive
                In general, with BMP-2 the picture is clearer
                Now they are in service only in the armies of the Czech Republic (173) and Slovakia (95). 87 German, Polish and Czech vehicles sold, two are in museums, the fate of only 8 BMP-2 armies of the former GDR is unclear

    Given the large shortage of BMPs in VSU, the fit is of course necessary. Its then BMP on dill was not made. Due to the lack of BMPs, several mechanized brigades move in armored personnel carriers, messes, and shushpantsers. buses and so on. Yes, they even desperately need Beushi Behs. Interestingly - is it still Czech under the old contract or have the Polish behi already gone?

        Naturally. But the Eastern Europeans have long been ordered to transfer to NATO equipment, they would still have to get rid of the old Soviet one. And selling is more profitable than recycling. I do not think that they dearly requested.

    NATO countries will supply Ukraine any amount of weapons in countless numbers, despite the apparent violation of the restrictions. But they will not improve the situation of Ukrainian citizens under any circumstances. Democracy for Ukrainians has its own specifics !!

      Of course, if you raise their standard of living, they will soften as the Europeans themselves and cease to be "European war." And so, not rich and evil, you can set us up, and even give "clubs".

      There are several answers to this question:
      1 Utilization of such equipment costs decent money
      2 In place of Soviet technology, you need to purchase a new one. But what kind of equipment will be acquired, there is already strict control.
      3 Keeping the fire in conflict
      4 That the guys would not transfer funds to such samples, the equipment is still needed

    Everything is clear with the Poles, but the Czechs surprised me, at first the monument to Konev, now the BMP-1, is slowly turning into people of low social responsibility. This raises the question of whether it was necessary to lay the heads of our soldiers for the release of these ungrateful pigs. I think if something like this happens again, ours will not play friendship and brotherhood with them.
