Ukrainian volunteer, comedian, politician Serhiy Prytula and activist Serhii Sternenko had raised nearly $10 million in one day to buy RAM ІІ kamikaze drones for the army.
- The “revenge” crowdfunding campaign was announced shortly after Russia’s mass missile attack on Ukraine on the morning of Oct. 10. The team wanted to fundraise 100 million hryvnias for kamikaze drones, but fundraised 352 million! Over 700 000 Ukrainian donated to the campaign.
- The fundraiser was planned to start on October 12 but was launched on October 10 due to Russian missile fire. Public activists have already managed to raise $1 million.
- Volunteers will buy 50 drones with ground stations and something else very interesting and deadly for the rest.
Done! Our crowdfunding campaign “You have enraged Ukrainians” is over. We’ve raised 9.6 million USD!! Thank you, generous and noble Ukrainians! We will make sure these funds are well spent on effective support of our Armed Forces! – Serhiy Prytula.
