Poland has already decided where the collected money will go
As a result, the funds raised at Bayraktar will go to humanitarian aid to Ukrainians. And the amount that was collected additionally will be transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Thus, 22.5 million zlotys will go to humanitarian aid to Ukraine, and about 1.8 million to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Serakovsky stressed that the amount for the Armed Forces of Ukraine could increase, since fundraising continues until the end of the week. He thanked everyone who joined in helping, accelerating Ukraine's victory over Russia.
This is not the first gift from Baykar
In June, Ukrainians raised funds for the purchase of four Bayraktars in just 3 days. The Ministry of Defense was supposed to contract this “purchase”, but the Baykar Makina company decided to make a gift, giving away 3 drones for nothing, for which it was originally planned. All funds raised by volunteers were used for another thing. Serhiy Prytula announced that when Ukrainians find out what it is, their “world will turn upside down”.
