The Ukrainian Armed Forces stole a night vision device from the United States, replacing it with a Chinese copy

57

During a check in one of the military units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, stationed in the Rivne region, a night vision device (NVG) donated by the United States was stolen. It was replaced by a Chinese-made copy device.


This is reported by the Ukrainian Military Pages.

In preparation for the inspection by representatives of the United States of night vision devices provided as an international assistance, it was revealed that instead of a portable monocular NVD device worth about 70 thousand hryvnia (190 thousand rubles), a cheaper copy of the PRC-made one with a plastic optical system is stored in the warehouse.

On the fact of a shortage of a valuable device, the Military Prosecutor's Office of the Rivne garrison opened a criminal case on August 3 under Article 413 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine “Loss of military property”.

Compared to other similar incidents, this case can be called "childish pranks". For example, in November 2018, in one of the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Lviv region, 7 thermal imaging sights of the ARCHER brand and 8 night vision devices were stolen for a total of 4,5 million hryvnia (approximately 12 million rubles). The aforementioned devices were also allocated to Ukraine by the US government as part of an international technical assistance program.

      Yeah. winked It doesn't look like them No.
      Ty, remember ...
      Representatives of the Diesel Show comic studio accused Kvartal 95 of stealing jokes and published a video confirming the plagiarism. It turned out that "Kvartal" almost completely stole the idea and implementation of the issue, which was originally shown by "Diesel" in 2015.

        Perhaps the American "chefs" initially slipped a Chinese counterfeit into their sponsors, and they just realized it?

            Tell meTerenin, do you really not know that the United States has been intensively purchasing through its contractors (and continues) components, products and materials for the needs of the army in the PRC?

            New scandal with Chinese components for the US Department of Defense.

            Finance.yahoo.com: Prominent Long Island firm sold to Department of Defense tens of millions of dollars worth of sensitive equipment made in China, while some high-tech elements were even installed on aircraft carriers.

            According to US Attorney Richard Donoghue, the fraud accused of Aventura Technologies Inc. has raised "serious concerns" about cybersecurity.

                  If Ukrainians stole, they would not replace it with a Chinese copy - a copy also costs money.
                  So the version that the Americans themselves stole, in my opinion, is the most likely
                  good

                And some Pentagon contractors simply and stupidly changed the imitation on chips from Chinese to American. If memory serves, $ 17 has been screwed up in only one company.

    What do you want? They now have, instead of two ranks, ensign and art. ensign, eight ranks of sergeant appeared. Let's discard from them the first three, still Soviet and to material goods that have a minimum relation, there are five left. And they all want to eat. Previously, two ensigns were tying from the warehouse, but now five sergeants are stealing.
