Ukraine's Crowdfunded Military Drone

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.

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

  6. C Mar on May 30, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Watching this today, 32 days after Russia invaded Ukraine in all out war. These guys made a huge difference. I hope they’re still out there doing they’re thing.

  7. Ahmed Lotfy on May 30, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    its nice to have your dog with you at war

  8. Russia1117 on May 30, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    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.

  11. OES Motorsport on May 30, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    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 😂

  12. Powder Wig Wooden Teeth MF on May 30, 2022 at 7:16 pm

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

  13. Lendzemo Joachimkimeng on May 30, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    All these could be avoided if NATO and the US didn’t stage a coup in 2014

  14. DU VAUCLIN on May 30, 2022 at 7:22 pm

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

  21. Kevin Quinn on May 30, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    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

  22. Вадим Капустин on May 30, 2022 at 7:28 pm

  24. Roland Lawrence on May 30, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    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.

  28. Aero FPV on May 30, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Hope all is working out for you guys. Any new updates?

  29. CummiBear69 on May 30, 2022 at 7:34 pm

  34. Copisetic 1 on May 30, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    You need to recheck you data sources, the US has sent very expensive weapons and money to the Ukrainians, England and Europe has sent weapons and money.

  35. Salam Ahmed on May 30, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    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

  36. Boris Shuplecov on May 30, 2022 at 7:38 pm

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