Ukrainian Angel of Mariupol to Visit NP Aerospace Armour Factory in Coventry
Yuliia Paievska, the famous ‘Taira’ Angel of Mariupol who saved 500 Ukranian lives in the conflict is set to visit NP Aerospace’s Foleshill Road, Coventry facility today to find out what goes into manufacturing life-saving armour used by Ukrainian soldiers.
She will be accompanied by a group of Ukraine frontline military and humanitarian personnel who are in the UK training for the US Army’s Warrior Games in Miami to recognise the resiliency of wounded, ill, and injured veterans.
Yuliia is the founder and leader of Taira’s Angels, a volunteer medical evacuation unit which has been working in Mariupol to support military personnel and civilians.
NP Aerospace has manufactured and delivered more than 20,000 sets of life-saving body armour plates and carrier vests to Ukraine military personnel in the last three months and is continuing to increase production to meet demand with the addition of 90 factory operators.
