Poland has opened a fundraiser for the Turkish attack drone “Bayraktar” for Ukraine. It will last 30 days. This was reported by the Polish journalist Slavomir Serakovsky on Facebook.
“Let’s give them a kick! Let’s buy Bayraktar to Ukraine! The Lithuanians raised the money in the shortest possible time, and the company that produced them decided to donate it to Ukraine and use the collected funds to help the population. Later, the same thing happened with the next three collections! It’s time for us too. “Bayraktars” are exceptionally effective in this war, and it was thanks to them that the Ukrainians managed to defend Kyiv. But the Ukrainians have little time. Do you remember Mariupol? We will take part in this fight,” he wrote.
It is planned to collect 22.5 million zlotys, at the moment more than 133 thousand have been collected.
Fees for “Bayraktary”
On June 22, Sergei Prytula’s charitable foundation and blogger Igor Lachenkov, known as Lachen, announced that they were starting to raise funds for three Bayraktar drones at once. To do this, it was necessary to raise 15 million dollars, or 500 million hryvnias. But already in three days, Ukrainians have collected as much as 600 million hryvnias.
The Turkish company, the manufacturer of the world-famous Bayraktar drones, decided to donate those Bayraktar TB2 UAVs for which they collected donations to our military for free.
Earlier, Lithuanian TV presenter and public figure Andrius Tapinas raised 5 million euros in three days on Bayraktar TB2 for the defenders of Ukraine. The fundraising campaign started on May 25, and on the evening of May 28, during a special broadcast, the journalist has already collected the necessary amount.
Turkey has decided to donate the Bayraktar TB2 strike drone for free, the money for which was collected in Lithuania, to be sent to Ukraine. With the money raised, Lithuania decided to purchase ammunition for the drone.
