Belgium will provide Ukraine with underwater drones and mobile laboratories
In addition, about 100 Belgian military instructors will begin training Ukrainian soldiers.
The Belgian government has approved a new military aid package including state-of-the-art equipment, such as mobile laboratories and underwater drones.
According to Belgian Defense Minister Ludivine Dedonder, Ukraine will receive two mobile laboratories within three weeks, LeSoir reports. They can be deployed near places where a chemical, bacteriological, radiological or nuclear incident could occur. They can also be used in disaster areas where hospitals and maternity hospitals have been destroyed.
The aid package also includes 10 underwater drones from ECA Robotics Belgium. They can find all underwater threats, including mines and spy equipment. “These are new high technologies that will help Ukrainians a lot. The Belgian army already has these devices,” Dedonder said.
In addition, about 100 Belgian military instructors will begin training Ukrainian soldiers as part of the European Military Assistance Mission to Ukraine (EUMAM Ukraine).
