ArtArmor and Lviv Defense Cluster exchange “shots” armor plates for new body armor

The founder of the art project ArtArmor, Oleksandr Kovalchuk, and the Chairman of the Board of the Lviv Defense Cluster (LDC), Maksym Plekhov, on the air “Suspilne. News” talked about the launch of the program to exchange armored plates that saved lives for new armored vests.


According to Maksym Plekhov, the essence of the idea is that the defenders of Ukraine, who have damaged armor plates and the history of how it saved their lives, hand over their “used” protective equipment to the. Lviv Defense Cluster.


In return, the defense company will send them new armor plates and plate carriers, and the damaged armor will be given to the ArtArmor team to be turned into art objects.


At the same time, the founder of ArtArmor Oleksandr Kovalchuk emphasized that not only the armor plate that saved a person’s life, but also the story of the rescue is important to us. This story will be used by artists in the future when creating an art object.


Nova Poshta, a well-known Ukrainian company and one of ArtArmor’s key partners, also participates in the armor plate exchange program. Thanks to its support, the defenders of Ukraine can send their armor plates to the Lviv Defense Cluster free of charge, and new means of protection will also be delivered to them free of charge. We are very grateful to Nova Poshta for its support!


Stories of saving human lives are extremely important for ArtArmor because protecting the sons and daughters of Ukraine is our main goal. Next, we will show you the story of a fighter with the call sign FOX, who was saved by a bulletproof vest from the debris of a 120 mm mine.
