The relevant statement was issued via Twitter, as seen by Ukrinform.
"Part of the funds collected by #LegionOfBoom (1,000,000 euros) will be transferred to Lithuanian Ministry of National Defense and will be used for the purchase of 37 kamikaze drones from Poland and then sent to Ukraine. Thank you everyone, who made donations!" the minister wrote.
The Legion of Boom campaign raising funds to arm Ukraine, organized by Lithuanian journalist Andryus Tapinas, was timed to Ukraine's Independence Day. According to Tapinas, by the time the fundraiser was completed, Lithuanians had donated EUR 1.545 million.
As Tapinas reported on Facebook, 27 Polish Warmate kamikaze drones will be purchased for EUR 1 million, while their manufacturer, WB Group, will provide ten more drones to Ukraine free of charge.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, Ukraine will receive Black Hornet reconnaissance micro-drones from Great Britain and Norway.
