Baykar will transfer Bayraktar drones to Ukraine free of charge

Компанія Baykar подарує Україні Байрактари

The Turkish company Baykar has announced that it will not charge for the Bayraktar TB2 drones, but will give them to the Ukrainian army free of charge, instead asking to send all the money collected by Ukrainians to help the people of Ukraine fight.

"Baykar has been informed that a crowdfunding campaign dubbed "The People's Bayraktar" was successful in raising funds to buy several Bayraktar TB2 UAVs for Ukrainians to use in defense of their Homeland. Business leaders and ordinary people alike contributed funds - small and large - to reach this milestone within a matter of a few days' time. Baykar will not accept payment for the TB2s, and will send 3 UAVs free of charge to the Ukrainian war front. We ask that raised funds be remitted instead to the struggling people of Ukraine. We are touched by their solidarity and resolve in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. Baykar prays for a just resolution and lasting peace..," the company's press service said.

It will be recalled that in just three days, Ukrainians have raised 600 million hryvnias to buy four Bayraktars for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The fundraising project was initiated by the Serhiy Prytula Charitable Foundation and blogger Igor Lachenkov.
