Ukrainian military received H&K MP5 weapons
This is really interesting: #Ukraine's Border Guards have got a bunch of Heckler & Koch MP5 9x19mm Parabellum submachine guns, presumably purchased from the MKEK company in Turkey. It was reported that the KORD special police units would also start operating them in August 2018. pic.twitter.com/aXIwnZjFB6
