Ukraine’s largest private military fund supporting the army from donations, Come Back Alive, starts an ambitious UAH 400 million ($10 million) fundraising campaign. The collected funds will be used to purchase 100 automatic grenade launchers, 200 large-caliber machine guns, and 300 82 mm mortars for 31 brigades of Ukraine’s territorial defense.
The fund said that weapons would be transferred to the military in batches as soon as they are manufactured.
As was reported, the Come Back Alive has just finished another $9 million campaign, purchasing long-range mortars for Ukraine’s territorial defense brigades, and $8 million to supply 75 long range Ukrainian-made reconnaissance UAV’s Shark from Ukraine’s Ukrspecsystems. In total, the fund has raised nearly $180 million since the beginning of the Russo-Ukrainian war in 2014. Donations for their new project can be made for the special account of the initiative on its web page.
The Ukrainian gas stations chain OKKO, which has already contributed to the previous fund’s campaigns, will also contribute to the new campaign, donating 1 UAH from each fuel liter it sells.
