After a successful campaign to raise funds to buy Bayraktar TB2 combat drone for Ukraine, Poland has launched another to buy three Mi-2AM-1 helicopters.

The aim of the Polish initiative is to receive multiple donations to buy the choppers which will be used to evacuate wounded Ukrainian soldiers, reports Arming Ukraine.

“We want to regularly buy effective weapons that will help our neighbors defend themselves and expel Russian criminals from the territory of Ukraine,” the campaign description states.

The Mi-2AM-1 helicopters will be delivered by Ukrainian company AviaGrade.

The cost of one helicopter is $570,000. A total of $1.8 million should be collected in 35 days to buy three evacuation helicopters, the report said.

Baykar gifts another TB2 to Ukraine

The people of Poland pooled in money (around $5 million) to buy a Bayraktar TB2 drone for Ukraine. Turkish firm Baykar Makina said it is giving it away for free. Funds collected by citizens for the TB2 will now become additional aid to Ukraine.
