Four days after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky made a request to Australia for Bushmaster armoured vehicles.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s plea to Australia to deliver essential military equipment in the battle against Russia has been answered four days later.

On Thursday, President Zelensky made a plea to the Australia parliament, specifically requesting Bushmaster armoured vehicles.

The Bushmaster armoured carriers are built to carry up to 10 troops in a blast-resistant shell. The French company Thales manufactures them in the central Victorian town of Bendigo.

It has been credited for saving countless Australian lives in Afghanistan and has been sold to the British SAS, The Netherlands and Jamaica. Each one costs in excess of $500,000.

The key to its success is the heavily armoured V-shaped hull that directs blast away from the maximum of 10 occupants.

Ukraine’s Ambassador to Australia Vasyl Myroshnychenko met with Defence Minister Peter Dutton on Monday for what he described a “productive meeting”, and thanked Australia for “responding to the call”.
