“bayraktars” in the fight against the enemy. The Turkish company Baykar donated several of these combat drones to Ukraine for free.
The director of the Come Back Alive charity foundation and military expert Taras Chmut told about this on Channel 24. At the end of July, the Turkish company announced that it would give Ukraine another Bayraktar free of charge.
More than $5 million was raised in Poland to purchase this drone. However, the manufacturing company refused to take this money.
Why Baykar gives drones for free
The director of the Come Back Alive Foundation explained what the company is guided by Baykar when they donate drones to Ukraine for free.
This is personal sympathy (for Ukrainians – 24 channels). There is also an element of injustice in Russia's actions towards us. And the justice of the war we are waging for our national beliefs,” Chmut said.
In addition, according to him, there are certain business interests in such steps of the Turkish company.
” Ukraine is a fairly promising partner that can offer something, that can test their equipment in a real war, and together with whom you can achieve much greater heights,” said the director of the Come Back Alive Foundation.
