In the framework of cross-border cooperation, Transcarpathian rescuers, together with Polish colleagues, are implementing the next stage of the joint project "Improvement of the system of rescue on the roads and crisis management in the Transcarpathian region - Ukraine". According to the project conditions, rescuers from the Khust district received two sets of hydraulic equipment from the company "Weber" from foreign colleagues. They will be used to eliminate the consequences of road accidents and save people.
On October 10, a delegation of rescuers and representatives of the iHELP Institute Foundation, which are partners of the department of SES of Ukraine in the Transcarpathian region, arrived in Khust. The project is being implemented within the framework of the "Polish Aid" program with the support and funding of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland. For the meeting with foreign guests arrived: People's Deputy of Ukraine Valery Lunchenko, Deputy of the Transcarpathian Regional Council Miroslav Bileckyi and head of Transcarpathian rescuers Roman Gudak. Valeriy Lunchenko highlighted the participants in the intensification of Polish-Ukrainian relationship, in particular, in terms of preventing and eliminating emergencies. And Miroslav Bileckyi expressed the hope that the contacts between the rescuers of two countries will only deepen and lead to the implementation of new projects in the future. According to Roman Hudak, the head of the department of SES of Ukraine in the Transcarpathian region, this is the fifth, practical stage of this project, and it will continue to October 14.
At the invitation of the iHELP Institute Foundation, the leading European experts also came to Khust.

The next two phases provide for working meetings of Polish and Ukrainian colleagues and the development of joint plans for cooperation in the case of emergencies that will have a transboundary nature.
