SEOUL, March 10 (Korea Bizwire) — South Korean military enthusiasts have stepped up to help Ukraine.
The enthusiasts have begun donating combat uniforms, helmets and combat boots, as seen on Twitter and other social media platforms.
The Ukrainian Embassy in Seoul did not make any public requests for donations of military equipment.
However, the embassy told individual inquirers that it would accept donations of bulletproof helmets and other military equipment.
Word soon got out on social media, with a series of donations from around the country ensuing.
As supplying military weapons is prohibited on a national level, individuals are stepping up to send non-lethal military equipment to Ukraine.
Donations can be made directly at the embassy or through parcel delivery. Items will be checked and categorized at the embassy before they are sent to Ukraine.
South Korean companies have also joined the donation spree.
Load Max Gear Tactical, a local tactical gear company, donated 1 million won (US$814)-worth of bulletproof jackets, gun slings and magazine pouches to the embassy.
