Volunteers published footage of crowdfunded attack drones disposing of russian occupiers

Since their arrival in early September, three Bayraktar TB2 attack drones have been helping the Ukrainian military by destroying russian equipment. The results of their work have been put on display by the Prytula Foundation, in the video below.

As a reminder, these three reconnaissance-and-strike unmanned aerial systems were fundraised in a donation campaign organized by volunteers of the foundation, but manufacturer Baykar Makina refused to take the money and handed them over free of charge. The money then got allocated for the purchase of an ICEYE satellite.

Note: the author of the original video later informed that the footage was mistaken, and it depicted the combat use of another Ukrainian Bayrakrtar TB2 and removed it from the open domain. Here is this video though, which shows recent footage of Bayraktar drones working in Ukraine, despite those being not exactly the ones funded by the Ukrainian people directly via the fundraiser

Later, several other volunteer organizations from various countries joined the initiative, this way people from Lithuania and Poland successfully raised the funds.

Meanwhile, Prytula Foundation is in process of acquiring 60 Spartan armored vehicles for the Ukrainian Army, with money raised by donations as well, while another charity designed and bought unique repair vehicles to resuscitate HMMWV right on the battlefield.
