Campaign goal

Purchase drones and deliver them to the troops in Donbas. Small commercial drones are more affordable for more people fighting in Ukraine, increasing the number of eyes in the air. 
We prioritize cooperation with Aero-Intelligence for distribution and familiarization with pilots.

Small commercial drones perform tasks:

1. search for live forces, techniques and objects

2. observation and support for ground forces

3. support to paramedics

Their greatest advantage is the low cost of acquisition and the huge benefit for protection and active search of enemy units. Drones are also extremely important for rescue and tracking of the wounded.

Who provides transportation?

I was in Donbas for the first time in June 2022 with humanitarian aid and material for Czech soldiers serving with the volunteer battalion Karpatska Sich.

My motivation is to help on the territory of Ukraine in the fight against the Russian army to reduce the number of attacks against civilians. I help by supporting the Czech soldiers fighting in the Donbas and bringing them the necessary material that I and other volunteers are able to find.

The better our soldiers are equipped and regularly supported, the better they will do their job, because they know that we will not leave them there and that we will support them. The better the equipment they have at their disposal, the more tactical advantage they will have over the Russian occupiers.

I want to commit Czech volunteers repeatedly for as long as it takes. More Czechs are joining the fighting in the Donbas every month.

The road to the Donbas is not easy, because first you need to cross the bureaucracy at the border with Ukraine, then you need to cross the whole of Ukraine, and lastly you need to hit the window when the Russians are not shelling the route and depots, and when the Ukrainian troops have patrolled and secured the routes against saboteurs.


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.
