Defense line of the Ukrainian army in the Kyiv region. Footage of the constructed defensive structures of the Ukrainian army in the Kyiv region has been published. It is worth noting that earlier, deputy of the Ukrainian Rada Irina Gerashchenko visited the Kharkov region and stated that the work on the construction of fortifications in the region was only an “imitation of vigorous activity”; money for fortifications in the Kharkov region was rolled into the ground for 1.5 years. The authorities of the Kyiv region, after a scandal surrounding reports of possible embezzlement during the construction of fortification lines on the borders of the Kharkov region, attracted special services and public organizations to check the construction of defensive lines in the region.

The Swedish government will send new military equipment to Ukraine worth $1.3 billion to fill the country’s most urgent capability gaps, officials announced on Wednesday.

The aid package will include the Saab-made airborne surveillance and control aircraft, known as ASC-890, which can track ships, drones, aircraft and missiles.

According to a statement published by the Swedish government, the aircraft will strengthen Ukraine’s “capability to identify and engage targets at long range.”

The weapons bundle will also contain a number of Swedish-made, advanced medium-range air-to-air missiles, or RB-99-AMRAAM, adapted for ground-to-air engagements.

The Scandinavian country will send its complete stock of armoured tracked personnel carriers, the PBV 302, alongside spare parts, ammunition, and maintenance equipment to support the regeneration of new Ukrainian brigades.

The Swedish vehicles, produced by the company now known as BAE Systems Hägglunds, were retired from service in 2014.

Additionally, Kyiv will receive an undisclosed number of 155mm artillery shells from Swedish stockpiles, “to combat Russian units in the depths of the battlefield,” according to the statement.

While this donation will lead to a temporary decline in Sweden’s armament, government officials have already committed to procuring more munitions as replacements. Similarly, defence officials in Stockholm intend to buy more GlobalEye surveillance aircraft from Saab to make up for the donation of the older ASC-890 type.

These Swedish pledge follows military aid commitments from Spain and Belgium this week in the areas of combat aircraft, tanks and air defence.

The United States sent the Ukrainian army a 105-mm Hawkeye mobile howitzer system for testing. This was announced by AM General director Mike Evans. The Hawkeye howitzer was developed by AM General and Mandus Group and was first shown in 2017. The Hawkeye howitzer is located on the base of the Humvee army SUV; other chassis can be used. The howitzer system moves the barrel and breech of the gun forward immediately before firing - this allows you to compensate for the load on the chassis and reduce recoil by 70%. It is worth noting that this system is quite complex and how it will work during long-term combat operation is unknown. The Hawkeye uses the M20 105mm howitzer. The Hawkeye's firing range with standard projectiles is 11.5 km, with active-missile projectiles 15-19 km. Mandus Group guarantees an effective rate of fire of the Hawkeye howitzer of at least three rounds per minute and an accelerated rate of fire of up to 12 rounds. The Hawkeye howitzer has a digital fire control system and is operated by a crew of three. The combat weight of the Hawkeye self-propelled gun on the Humvee chassis does not exceed 4.4 tons.
