Dutch action group with 187 DJI Mini 2s on its way to Ukraine

The Dutch action group Eyes on has raised enough money in record time to purchase 187 Mini 2s. A van with the first shipment of DJI Mini 2 drones is now on its way to Ukraine.

The campaign may be continued if it turns out that there is still a need for small drones to document the war.

Eyes on Ukraine

The Eyes on Ukraine campaign was launched a few days ago. The goal is to raise money to buy small camera drones that can be used in Ukraine to record war crimes from the air. Earlier, three Finns managed to bring 140 similar mini-drones to Ukraine.

The aim was to raise enough money for 70 drones of the type. That target amount was achieved in no time, partly because Editie NL paid attention to the initiative.

In the end, so many donations were received that as many as 187 drones could be purchased.

On Sunday morning, a van of the organization left for Ukraine to deliver the drones there. The recipients will also receive training.

Gratitude for 187 DJI Mini 2s

The initiators express their thanks to the donors on Twitter:

“🙏for the huge support, we are driving 187 drones! For safety’s sake, we don’t do a live report. When we get back, we’ll show you in detail how it went. Preparations for subsequent shipments continue (until they no longer want drones). #Ukraine #EyesOnUkraine”
