Crowdfunding campaign launched in Lithuania to buy 500 FPV drones for Ukraine

The Lithuanian organization "Mazi, bet stiprus" ("Small, but strong") has launched the "Songs of Drones" campaign, which will last until August 24, with the aim of collecting EUR 300,000 for the purchase of 500 FPV kamikaze drones for Ukraine.

That's according to Delfi, Ukrinform reports.

Raimundas Aleknavicius, the founder of the organization, said that both the Ukrainian counteroffensive and new Russian attacks are taking place at the front, and one of the most influential factors in the war is the use of drones.

"The war in Ukraine will go down in world military history as a war of constantly evolving drone technologies. Along with combat Bayraktars, commercial DJIs and various fixed-wing drones, FPV-type kamikaze drones are currently gaining more importance in the war between Ukraine and Russia," Aleknavicius said.
