SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio — Looking to help troops in Ukraine amid Russia's ongoing invasion and military attack, the South Euclid Police Department made a very impactful donation.

The department took to social media Thursday, sharing that members of its multi-jurisdictional EDGE, or SWAT unit, donated equipment such as body armor, helmets and other protective gear.

The items donated are set to be delivered directly to the front-line troops in Ukraine, the department said.

Ukraine has been fighting back tirelessly since Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a "special military operation" at the end of February.

Heavy shelling and missile attacks, many on civilian buildings, have continued throughout major cities.
