A plane with 30 Humvees on board is arriving in Ukraine next week.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko announced this in Kyiv on Saturday when meeting with civil volunteers who work for Ukraine's Defense Ministry.

"The first batch of 30 armored Hummers will be delivered to us by plane next week. The troopers may start applauding," the president said.

However, he said, Ukraine will continue manufacturing own armored vehicles, including armored personnel carriers of Series 3 and Series 4.
