Turkey’s Baykar to donate three Bayraktar TB2s to Ukraine after Ukrainian crowdfunding campaign
Turkey’s Baykar Makina, the producer of Bayraktar TB2 UAVs, said it would donate three drones to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, for which Ukrainians raised funds.
“Baykar has been informed that a crowdfunding campaign called ‘The People’s Bayraktar’ was successful in raising funds to buy several Bayraktar TB2 UAVs for Ukrainians to use in defense of their homeland. Business leaders and ordinary people have contributed – small and large – to reach this milestone within a matter of a few days’ time. Baykar will not accept payment for the TB2s, and will send three UAVs free of charge to the Ukrainian war front,” said on Baykar Makina’s Twitter account.
“We are touched by their solidarity and determination in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. Baykar prays for a just resolution and lasting peace,” the statement said.
