Ukraine's Crowdfunded Military Drone

Crowd-funding campaigns can raise money for some pretty wacky projects, such as asteroid defense or images of brains on LSD. But rarely do you hear of campaigns raising funds for military equipment. Enter the People’s Project, a volunteer-led organization based in Ukraine that has a section currently raising funds for a military drone.

    Ukrainian president is a betrayal. Look what shape Ukraine is in ? Due to Russia ? No, due to enormous corruption going on left and right.

  2. Tony Tng on April 5, 2021 at 12:59 am

    LOL wtf?!?! the drone’s design is almost identical to my drone’s design during my university days

    Again I hear that people are still believing that Russia is fighting Ukraine. give the proper proof. where is the Russian air force, where are the Tiger armors cars, btr-82a, bmp-2/3, bmd-2/3, navy, cruise missiles? that are also used against ISIS and many other military vehicles that Russia uses.

  7. b4blue on April 5, 2021 at 1:04 am

    US poured so much money into war in Ukraine and you’re telling me these guys needed crowdfunding? BS. Nice try though.

  8. Selpyilgen on April 5, 2021 at 1:04 am

    "Russian troops in Ukraine"  "Ukraine is fighting Russian backed separatists"  
    >Separatists
    >Russian troops
    Pick one.

    You can’t even be consistent in your own propaganda, you imperialist pigs.

  17. David Hamacek on April 5, 2021 at 1:15 am

    Vice, please stfu with that propaganda, your (american) military started this bullshit by funding revolutionaries in Ukraine.

  18. Powder Wig Wooden Teeth MF on April 5, 2021 at 1:16 am

    Do your research people. There’s a lot of lies about Ukraine. Learn about the Bandera Nazis in Ukraine and how it all started

  19. Dilandau88 on April 5, 2021 at 1:17 am

    That country is fucked if they need to have random civilians crowd fund their military assets.

  20. Adrian on April 5, 2021 at 1:18 am

  21. Scias on April 5, 2021 at 1:18 am

    man are they trying to copy VICE NEWS or what

  26. sok8888 on April 5, 2021 at 1:29 am

    Ukrainian soldiers are fighting the war further and further from the front line. Long distance war, eh. Soon they will fight using only UAV like the Americans in Afghanistan.

  27. alexander heron on April 5, 2021 at 1:30 am

    well that thing is just a rc airplane and it cost 35K???i smell a rat

  28. Mucus Drizzle on April 5, 2021 at 1:31 am

  30. Dutchhero2 on April 5, 2021 at 1:31 am

    Utmost respect to the company designing and building the drones and also the guys and gals on the frontline.
    You show a remarkable spirit.
    Best regards from the Netherlands!

  31. wont tell on April 5, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Did he just admit at 2:35 that Ukraine was (will be) violating the Minsk agreement?

  32. Salam Ahmed on April 5, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Drone to kill innocent men and women east and south of Ukraine by the same government said: "we will make their(the rebels) children pay highest/greatest price" – Petro Poroshenko

  33. Victor Weikum on April 5, 2021 at 1:35 am

    Bomb yourselves out, shitheads! Glory to Donetsk!

  34. OES Motorsport on April 5, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Ukraine crowdfunding.. i wish to see that… 😂😂😂😂😂 I think it was more like crowd money stealing by a highly corrupted government which basically doesnt exsist in my opinion 😂

  35. killersushi99 on April 5, 2021 at 1:40 am

    $35K for a drone…Here in US it costs $182345604835704984368756610483576.03

  36. Aero FPV on April 5, 2021 at 1:42 am

  38. ⵉⵜⵔⵓⵏⴰⵓⵜ on April 5, 2021 at 1:43 am

    The Russians can finish this entire party with a single Topol-M.

  39. Kevin Quinn on April 5, 2021 at 1:44 am

    The OSCE complains that its drones are being fired at by ‘the russians’. Then they make the mistake of noting that ‘an other’ drone was also being fired at . https://www.osce.org/special-monitoring-mission-to-ukraine/384642

  40. Europe Armed Forces on April 5, 2021 at 1:46 am

    EU civilians for tired of EU
    while Ukrainians donate to fellow strangers to say NO to the Kremlin

  41. OSKI YAHOO on April 5, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Im feel blessed to be part of a country like the USA. Our predator drone is so advanced, stealthy, and gps missle equipped. These people are working with hobby drones that don’t have a high altitude and are loud. Really shows you how the rest of the world has yet to catch up.

  42. ironrazma25 on April 5, 2021 at 1:50 am

    i like when us government is giving money to overthrown governments in ex ussr countrys, I ALSO LIKE HOW MOST AMERICANS DONT LIKE RUSSIA , WHEN THEY INVADED WITHOUT ANY INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT IN 5 independent country, read some CIA OPEN FILES ABOUT ,ALL OVERTHROWN GOVERNMENTS ALL ACROSS WORLD FOR ABOUT 50 years…

  43. Professional youtuber Impersonator on April 5, 2021 at 1:52 am

    Can i crowdfund a predator drone?

  44. Roland Lawrence on April 5, 2021 at 1:53 am

    how are they not getting government funding? i mean the amount of money nato countries are giving ukraine for military assistance… where is it going? nice to see that the PD-1 was a success though. its developed rather a lot since this 2015 story!

  45. Oskars Ralfs Vanags on April 5, 2021 at 1:53 am

    1:12 looks like underpeans on the drone wtf ukraine! culture yes, you don’t have culture !

  46. CummiBear 69 on April 5, 2021 at 1:53 am

  47. Jordi van Selm on April 5, 2021 at 1:53 am
