The Kharkiv defense forces have received a batch of modern optics as assistance from the people of Cyprus, the Netherlands, and Poland, namely 200 binoculars worth almost EUR 35,000.

That’s according to the press service of the Eastern Territorial Department of the National Guard of Ukraine, Ukrinform reports.

"Residents of Cyprus, the Netherlands, and Poland have given us 200 10x50 and 10x42 binoculars worth almost 35,000 euros, delivered from Cyprus to Kharkiv for the Eastern Territorial Department of the National Guard of Ukraine, the National Academy of the National Guard, and the Kharkiv Region Police," the statement said.

The batch was transferred across Europe at the expense of Polish volunteers, while on the border with Ukraine, the batch was picked up by their Ukrainian counterparts with the "Kharkiv with You" and "HelpArmy" nonprofits.

"Thanks to the true friends of our Guards, a big van delivered the binoculars to Kharkiv, all intact and safe," the report said.

According to the National Guard, among the initiators behind the assistance effort was a well-known Kharkiv native Yulia Staroselska.

“Many remember her as Yulia Bezrukava, the face of Ukraine's first independent, non-governmental Tonis Center TV company. The star of Kharkiv television, she is still successfully engaged in journalism, but in Cyprus, where Julia hosts popular TV and radio shows," the statement reads.
