Ukrainian paratroopers from Mykolaiv in southeastern Ukraine have received an ambulance, along with equipment and medicine, from the Ukrainian diaspora in Spain. 

The volunteers’ gift allows for evacuating the wounded from the battlefield and providing first aid to them en route to medical facilities, Ukraine Today reports. 

The ambulance is equipped with an oxygen supplying system, and heaters that can warm up liquids with which to treat patients.

The vehicle is soon to be deployed to the front line in eastern Ukraine, where government troops have been fighting Russian-backed insurgents for almost a year.
