According to Markarova, approximately in the first half of the year, Washington will transfer the Island boat to Ukraine.

“It will be handed over and delivered in the near future. We are very actively cooperating here … We are a little dependent on transport here, but this is definitely the first quarter of 2022,” Markarova said.

The ambassador said that in 2022 it is planned to send Mark VI patrol boats to Ukraine.

The number of Mark VI boats that the Americans will transfer to the Ukrainian Navy is under discussion. According to the ambassador, there will be three plus plus.
