The mini excavators, together with 20 generators from the Korean government, are being supplied alongside contributions from aid agencies in France and the USA after attacks on the country’s critical infrastructure.

Dmytor Ponomarenko, Ukraine’s ambassador to South Korea, said: “An agreement was reached with the Korean side on the transfer of 20 generators with a capacity of 450 to 500 kW, as well as five Doosan DX17Z mini excavators to Ukraine as humanitarian aid.”

Earlier this year, Doosan made a donation at the company’s European Dealer Meeting to support Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF), the international medical humanitarian organisation.
