Latest Updates on the Ukraine/Russia Crisis

Whilst at its core a humanitarian crisis, the Russian invasion of Ukraine risks adding materially to existing global economic and supply challenges. We are likely heading into a period in which geopolitics will become a regular part of boardroom discussions. Recent developments have seen Russian companies make significant progress around the world to supply countries with equipment in various Aerospace, Defense & Security sectors. This means that countries dependent on Russian arms for their security calculations should review all purchases and clauses regarding their programs and payments.

The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) has also notified Congress of the possible foreign military sale.

Safe Boats International will be the prime contractor of the potential sale.

Overall, Ukraine has placed a request to purchase 16 Mark VI Patrol Boats, 32 MSI Seahawk A2 gun systems, 20 Electro-Optics-Infrared Radar (FLIR), 16 Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) 5km loudspeaker systems, 16 Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) systems, and 40 MK44 cannons.

The purchase request also includes related communication equipment, support equipment, spare parts, tools and test equipment, technical data and publications, logistics suppor, and personnel training.

The addition of the vessels will bolster the Ukrainian Navy’s patrolling capabilities and tackle current and future threats.

The Eastern European country plans to utilise the Mark VI Patrol Boats to defend its territorial waters and protect other maritime interests.

In a statement, DSCA said: “This proposed sale will support the foreign policy goals and national security objectives of the United States by improving the security of a partner country that is a force for political stability and economic progress in Europe.”

It also added that the sale will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

In April, the US State Department approved the potential foreign military sale of ten AGM-84L Harpoon Block II air launched missiles and related equipment to India.
