OHIO — Governor Mike DeWine announced this week that nearly 2,000 pieces of personal protective equipment donated by Ohio law enforcement across the state will soon be sent to Ukraine.

“I am so grateful to all of the law enforcement agencies who took the time to collect their unnecessary equipment and donate it to our friends in Ukraine who are fighting for their lives,” DeWine said. “I also commend the Ukraine Relief Fund and its partners who have worked to ensure that these donations will go directly to Ukrainian civilians who bravely stand up against Russia to defend their country and protect their families.”

The state is donating 71 vest carriers, 45 helmets and 1,880 bulletproof vests to help protect civilians defending Ukraine against Russia.
