Samples of individual rations developed for the Armed Forces of Ukraine developed by RAZOM and FEST companies will be demonstrated in Media Center Ukraine. The developers called their individual ration for extreme conditions Kosmichna Yizha (Space Food). It is on par with food kits used by the world’s leading armies.
On the President’s website, a petition requesting that vegetarian and vegan military ration packs be provided for Ukraine’s Armed Forces has already been supported by one-third of the required votes. Petitioners emphasize that such rations are needed not only by those who do not eat foods of animal origin for medical or ethical reasons. Religious fighters who keep the fast also need them. As long as this issue is not addressed at the government level, volunteers solve it independently. Before the all-out war, NGO Every Animal engaged in education projects. Now, they cook food for vegans on the front line. Their volunteer kitchens work in seven cities of Ukraine.
