[03.06.23] Hungary Offers Discarded Military Equipment to Kyrgyzstan

Hungary has offered to give Kyrgyzstan military equipment that had to be discarded when Hungary joined NATO, the official Kyrgyz news agency Kabar reported on 3 June, quoting Altai Borubaev, chairman of the Kyrgyz parliament's lower house. Hungary is offering the equipment and armaments free of charge, Borubaev said, adding that Kyrgyzstan is definitely interested, as it could use the donated materiel in border protection and the fight against terrorism. Earlier, the Czech Republic made a similar offer to give Kyrgyzstan military equipment the Czech military can no longer use as a NATO member.
