The Lithuanian public had purchased 110 powerful EDM4S anti-drone guns for Ukraine, Lithuanian TV presenter and public figure, Andrius Tapinas, said on June 13.

The total cost of the guns exceeds EUR 1.5 million ($1.56 million). 

The guns will be delivered to Ukraine in the near future. They will be distributed among 35 units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. 

“We named them Orcrist, the Orc-Slayer,” Tapinas said. 

“Tolkien would approve.”

Tapinas had previously raised EUR 5 million ($5.2 million) in three days to buy a Bayraktar TB2 drone for the defenders of Ukraine.

In response, Turkey decided to donate the Bayraktar TB2 attack drone to Ukraine for free

Lithuania intends to use the raised money for purchasing ammunition for the drone, as well as spend it on supporting Ukraine.
