A fundraising appeal launched after Russian attacks on cities across the country on Monday has raised $9.6 million in 24 hours to buy kamikaze drones for the Ukrainian armed forces.
An initial 50 Ram II drones, unmanned aerial vehicles with 3 kg explosive payloads, will be purchased with the money raised, along with three control stations, while other munitions will be provided in the coming days, said Serhiy Prytula, who organized the initiative. .
He added: They wanted to scare us, but we came together even more. People have donated to the revenge, so we will make sure the revenge happens.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy told G7 leaders on Tuesday via video conference that Russia had used a variety of munitions to hit Ukrainian cities over the previous two days, killing 20 people.
“The enemy has used more than 100 cruise missiles, dozens of different drones, including Iranian Shaheds,” he said. “And every 10 minutes I get a message about the enemy’s use of Iranian martyrs.”
Zelenskiy added that Ukrainian intelligence believed Russia had ordered 2,400 Shahed-136 kamikaze drones from Iran, as he called on the West to provide Ukraine with better air defense systems.
