The United States plans to provide Ukrainian border guards and police with 190 Mine Resistant Ambush Protection (MRAPs) vehicles, according to the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink.

She notes that these MRAPs will enable Ukrainian law enforcement to protect the civilian population, especially near the front lines.

She also mentioned that she was present alongside U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in a meeting with representatives of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs and the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine. They handed over the first American MRAP to Ukrainian border guards and police.
