My guess is it gives them a non Russian helicopter that they can make, maintain, and repair.
At present they have, reportedly, terrible serviceability from their fleet of Mil helicopters, given ongoing conflict with Russia.
Maybe they can re-engine the UH-1 with local engine, or get approval to make the Lycoming T53, as Ukraine has a very capable engine company (Moto Sich).
