Ukraine Government Begins Probe of Faulty Ballistic Vest Purchases

According to the Ukraine State Bureau of Investigations, five defense officials are under investigation involving the purchase of substandard "bulletproof" vests. It is charged that the Ukrainian Defense Directorate of 20,000 knowingly purchased defected "bulletproof" ballistic vests (as well as thousands of poor quality military shelters). Seventy-nine of 100 vests randomly tested failed the requirement specification.

The BeaverLake6 Report appears to be the only technical textile website reporting on the scandal.
