In a little over a day, Ukrainians donated UAH 352 million ($9.5 million) to the “retribution fund,” following Moscow’s barrage of deadly air and missile strikes, fundraiser coordinators Serhiy Prytula and Serhiy Sternenko said in a Telegram post on Oct. 11.
According to the message, UAH 100 million ($2.7 million) have already been earmarked for supplying the Ukrainian Armed Forces with 50 RAM II loitering munition UAVs and control terminals for them.
Sternenko and Prytula promised to later elaborate on how the rest of the funds will be allocated, assuring that all of it will be put towards “eliminating Russian invaders.”
In less than two days, the initial fundraiser goal of UAH 100 million was exceeded several times over.
“There will be many dead invaders,” Prytula said.
“Because Ukrainians know how to correctly channel their rage into a productive action.”
