The Minister of National Defense Arvydas Anusauskas stated that Lithuania had signed an agreement with the Turkish side on an agreement on the purchase of a Bayraktar strike drone for the needs of the Ukrainian army.
“Agreement was signed in Türkiye today with the President of the Turkish Defense Agency prof. Ismail Demir on cooperation with the Ministry of National Defense of Lithuania. This agreement paves the way for the purchase of Bayraktar,” Anusauskas wrote.
According to the defense minister, the citizens of Lithuania collected almost EUR 6 million in just three days to buy a strike drone for the needs of the Ukrainian Army.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, in late May, Lithuania’s Laisvės TV launched a fundraiser for the purchase of the Bayraktar drone for Ukraine. Initially, the campaign’s goal was to raise the required amount in three weeks. However, the Lithuanians coped faster.
