Turkey has decided to donate a Bayraktar TB2 unmanned aerial vehicle to Ukraine for free, even though Lithuania crowdfunded enough money to buy it, announced Lithuanian Defense Minister Arvydas Anušauskas on Twitter on June 2.

Lithuania will instead use the collected money to purchase ammunition for the drone, as well as to spend it on other means of supporting Ukraine, said Anušauskas.

Andrius Tapinas, a Lithuanian TV host, raised EUR 5 million ($5.3 million) in just three days to buy a Bayraktar TB2 drone for Ukrainian defenders.

The fundraising campaign started on May 25, and hit its goal during a special broadcast on the evening of May 28.
