The state does not have the ability to massively process requests from military units. Therefore, the help of volunteers to each small section of the front in the global picture gives a great advantage to our army.
For volunteering to be effective, it must meet the specific needs of the military, not the ideas of the volunteers. Soldier Oleksandr Karpyuk and businessman and volunteer Yury Golyk spoke about this in an interview with 24tv.ua.
Alexander and Yuriy have been providing personalized assistance to the army since 2015. During the years of the war, they have thoroughly studied the needs of the military, have accumulated personal contacts with various brigades and are not afraid of bureaucratic obstacles. According to Golik, the state does not have the ability to massively process requests from military units. Therefore, their assistance to every small section of the front in the global picture gives a great advantage to our army.
One of the most large-scale projects that volunteers managed to implement in their time and, most importantly, make it a system project is front-line cameras.
“It’s the cameras that are not new at the front. There were aerial reconnaissance cameras, but they stood further away and were older, they saw worse. data, food. It helped to save lives and service became easier,” says Alexander Karpyuk.
Now he is performing combat missions in the Donetsk direction and sees with his own eyes the primary needs of the military. Together with Yuri Golik, over the past year they have “closed” a number of projects: from night vision devices and sights to sniper rifles.
“We start from the requests of the military. It turned out that there is a shortage of nightlights, it is impossible to work at night. We bought nightlights and sights for two scouts for them and brought instructors from the EU who taught them how to work with them. There are many requests for reconnaissance drones. This is an ongoing process, who is logged into the system,” says the entrepreneur.
Volunteers are convinced that the help of the army will always be relevant. Since it is precisely this that is a guarantee of the independence of our country, which has a common border with Russia and Belarus. Therefore, in the future, both volunteers seek to focus their attention on the development of new UAVs that would be useful for the military.
“We are already developing several experimental UAV models based on the characteristics that are needed at the front. I think that as a result we will bring them to test samples, test them and try to make them mass-produced,” Yury Golik summed up.
