Drone manufacturer Baykar said it sent three Bayraktars to Ukraine free of charge. In a statement on Twitter, Baykar said it was touched by the solidarity of Ukrainians for the fundraiser.
"Baykar is aware that a fundraising campaign called "The People's Bayraktar" has successfully raised an amount to buy several Bayraktar TV2 UAVs for Ukrainians to defend their homeland. Businessmen and ordinary people contributed funds, small and large, to achieve this goal within a few days. Baykar will not accept payment for TV2 and will send 3 UAVs to the Ukrainian front for free," reads the published letter.
Instead, they asked that the money raised be used to help the people of Ukraine fight, showing "solidarity and determination in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges."
Over the three days of the action, Ukrainians raised 600 million hryvnia, enough to purchase four Bayraktar TB2 UAVs.
