Lithuanians raised almost 6 million euros for the drone in May, largely in small donations, following which its Turkish maker, Baykar, decided to donate it instead.
Also, Lithuanians purchased four modern Estonian-made recon drones EOS C VTOL for Ukraine, and two more are planned to be purchased in the near future.
