19:27, 21 October 2019

Two Island-class patrol boats reached the port of Odesa, southern Ukraine. The vehicles were delivered aboard the Ocean Freedom bulk carrier. The boats are now employed by the Ukrainian Navy.

The command called them Slovyansk and Starobilsk, paying tribute to the acts of valors of Ukrainian forces that liberated these towns from Russian mercenaries in Donbas.

Soon the boats that carry the artillery armament will be able to patrol the waters of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov.
