The State Enterprise “Forests of Ukraine” will supply any volume of timber for fortifications without intermediaries, said CEO Yuriy Bolokhovets.

“Customers do not need to turn to intermediaries – we will find the volumes and organize the delivery. No matter what point on the map of Ukraine we are talking about,” he wrote on Facebook on Thursday.

According to him, the terms of transfer of wood for fortifications are determined by the Ministry of Defense, regional military administrations, military units, and may include tenders, direct contracts and other mechanisms.

“We are the largest state-owned company. If it is necessary, Forests of Ukraine is ready to significantly increase the volume of supplies,” said Bolokhovets, adding that the company has been fulfilling all defense orders without exception.

“Recently, Forests of Ukraine won the Ministry of Defense’s tender on Prozorro for the supply of almost 28 thousand cubic meters of wood at a price of UAH 3.75 thousand per cubic meter with delivery.

Also this year, the state-owned company provided the Defense Forces with almost 75 thousand cubic meters of wood free of charge and fulfilled all requests from military units received by the company.

Earlier, Bolokhovets said that since 2023, Forests of Ukraine has provided the Armed Forces with almost 200 thousand cubic meters of lumber and raw wood worth more than UAH 330 million.
