Every campaign that you can find on the Weapons for Ukraine website is thoroughly verified in several ways. First of all, we check the guarantor of the campaign. The guarantor must personally vouch for the truthfulness of the information, meet us personally and prove their identity. We then verify the purpose of the campaign and manually verify that the aid recipient is an existing unit that trusts the guarantor and that it really needs the equipment for which the campaign raises funds. In the case of weapons or weapon systems, the Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic and the Embassy of Ukraine in the Czech Republic also carry out an examination of their necessity and usefulness.
