The United States is expected to deliver another batch of high mobility multi-purpose wheeled vehicles (HMMWV), aka Humvees, Ukrainian Ambassador to the U.S. Valery Chaly told RFE/RL.
"Humvees - a new delivery of new high-quality vehicles, including medical ones, is in the pipeline," the ambassador said in an interview with RFE/RL Thursday.
He added that on Wednesday a high-level U.S. expert discussion had been held bringing up on the table the issue of defensive arms for Ukraine, including anti-tank weapons, anti-mine weapons, communications, and anti-battery radars.
