In just three days, Ukrainians have raised over UAH 235,000,000 through a joint fundraiser by UNITED24, Come Back Alive, and monobank for 10,000 kamikaze drones

The Ministry of Digital Transformation reports.

"3 days. 235,000,000 hryvnias (over $6 million - ed.).10,000 kamikaze drones. These are the results of a joint fundraiser by UNITED24, Come Back Alive, and monobank," the statement reads.

It is noted that this fundraising became possible thanks to Operation Iednist (Unity - ukr.). Thus, Ukrainians collected 10,000 FPV drones at a record speed.

The first batch of more than 5,000 drones has already arrived in Ukraine. They will be equipped with Ukrainian-made ammunition, distributed among dozens of brigades of the Ukrainian Defense Forces, and sent to the front.

  • In May, it was reported that during the full-scale invasion, the Ukrainian foundation Come Back Alive raised more than UAH 7 billion to help the Ukrainian Defense Forces.

  • In June, the Come Back Alive Foundation for Competent Assistance to the Army handed over 1,000 new 40-mm ATGL-L3 hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers to the Ukrainian Defense Forces. The grenade launchers were delivered to 16 brigades.

  • Come Back Alive handed over a Valkyrie unmanned aerial vehicle to the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine to destroy the Russian enemy.
