It was announced by Oleksandr Turchinov, Acting President of Ukraine on June 4, 2014 at the Chuguyev firing range (Kharkov region) during the presentation of ‘Dozor-B’ main specifications. The armor was also inspected by Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and commanders of the battalions involved in Kiev’s so-called "anti-terrorist operation" in the country’s east.

"The small armored personnel carrier Dozor-B is necessary both for mobile units of Armed Forces of Ukraine and National Guard. It is manoeuvre, fast, all-terrain mobility with the speed of 120 km/hour, has rather powerful weaponry and, what is the most important, it is much cheaper than other armored personnel carriers,” – Mr. Turchinov reported.

According to the executive, state is interested in provision of Armed Forces of Ukraine and National Guard with armored vehicles of such type. From Turchinov’s conviction, setting of serial production of ‘Dozor-B’ will strengthen the defensive capacity of Ukrainian military units and provide the enterprises of national defense industrial complex with the relevant orders.
