New Ukrainian Uniform and Camouflage Released

We have been following the Ukraine military uniform trials from prior to the uprising that took place at the Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kiev. It was interesting to see the wide variety of patterns being utilized at the various military training events and demonstrations provided by Ukraine's military. At times the serviceman looked like quite the mishmash of camo as different units utilized varying patterns.

With the new National Guard it certainly got interesting as they took on whatever they could get. On the other side of the coin, Ukraine separatists appeared to have the same mindset with utilizing whatever they had on hand and in many cases the same camouflage as the forces they were opposing with plenty of western A-TACS, MultiCam, and MultiCam derivatives thrown in the mix. Now it appears that Ukraine has settled on a distinct uniform and camouflage pattern, which you can see in the video above and explained in detail with the video below. Major General Oleg Gulyak as a press liaison, introduces the new uniform at the Military Academy of Odessa.
