    A nice batch of stuff! Someday the Ukrainian stuff will be sought after just like the Balkans stuff. Definitely grabbing these things now is smart.

    In the early days of the war in Donbas the Ukrainian government and volunteer forces, as well as the Russian backed separatists, used pretty much anything they could get their hands on. Since Bundeswehr and British surplus uniforms were already available in huge numbers at very low prices, those two uniforms saw a lot of use. Very often with no badging at all. That started changing in late 2014 with the separatists using a lot of commercial sets from Russia and the Ukrainian military getting new uniforms. The Ukrainian volunteer units still use a mix of uniforms, but they also have tried to standardize.

    that's absolutely right Steve. there are pics of troops wearing literally any sort of European camos, at times. very funny to see this. anyhow, Ukrainian troops, especially special forces (paras, specnas etc pp) were wearing brit and (even) dutch dpm camos and german "flecktarn" stuff even way before the events in eastern Ukraine started to happen ... The pics I posted above are from 2011 (Vitaly Kuzmin) and 2009 (the one below), respectively .... I once found a ukrainian website showing Ukrainian special troops wearing aformentioned camos en masse (... in clean english Wink ) during some sort of war games ... I will post the link for the mentioned page later, so you guys can check it out. I just need to find it again.

    Always good to see a genuinely badged example of a Ukrainian uniform prior to the current conflict. Thanks!

    thank you Alex, Steve and Andreas. I love this piece, it is really good quality (not always the case with Ukrainian stuff) and in excellent shape.
