Unity Operation: Foundation receives first 5000 kamikaze drones

The Come Back Alive Foundation for Competent Assistance to the Army has received the first batch of 5,000 kamikaze drones it purchased as part of the Unity Operation, a joint effort with United24 and monobank.

The Foundation and its partners raised UAH 235 million for 10,000 FPV drones and ammunition on August 14-17.

“We have received the first 5,000 kamikaze strike drones as part of Unity Operation, a joint effort with United24 and monobank,” says Taras Chmut, director of the Come Back Alive initiative. “It was important for us not only to buy the drones, but also to equip them with a munition so that the military would not have to make it themselves. After all, there is always a risk that self-made explosives may not work at the right time or explode suddenly. The Foundation purchased the drones abroad, and the cumulative and high-explosive ammunition for them was made in Ukraine. Thus, we will provide the army with a ready-made and reliable product in large quantities. We thank everyone who supported the initiative. When we have a plus, the enemy has a minus.”

The FPV drones will be distributed among dozens of brigades of the Ukrainian Defense Forces, including the Territorial Defense units, as well as the Security Service of Ukraine, including the fighters of the SOC “A”.
