Serhii Kruk, who heads Ukraine’s State Emergency Service, reported on March 19 that Ukraine has lost more than 1,700 fire trucks, 300 fire stations and more than 700 buildings run by the Emergency Service since the start of Russia’s full-scale war.

Some of these lost assets have been damaged from constant shelling, the rest have been seized by the Russian army in occupied areas.

Kruk added that Ukraine currently receives a lot of aid from various countries, including “extremely necessary ” equipment for rescuers and special clothing.

Over the past year, Kyiv alone received 36 fire trucks, including 12 fire trucks and 7 ambulances from Germany and Poland, as well as rescue equipment from Switzerland, which the city received in July last year.
