During the charity campaign "Radarom!", which started in Lithuania on Wednesday, more than 1 million euros have already been collected. These funds will be used to purchase and send Lithuanian-made equipment to Ukrainian defenders.

One of the action participants – the Lithuanian broadcaster LRT – reported this.

It is noted that these funds were collected as of Sunday morning.

They can be used to purchase 133 "security kits" for military service members.

Each set worth 7.5 thousand euros consists of:

  • night vision monocular,
  • laser sight,
  • individual anti-drone complex.

The equipment was manufactured in Lithuania by the companies "Brolis Semiconductors" and "NT Service."

Fundraising was initiated by LRT, Laisvės TV, Blue/Yellow organizations, Stiprūs kartu, and journalist Rita Miliute.

Donations to the campaign are accepted until February 24.

One can donate 5 euros by calling the short number 1485.

Moreover, funds can be donated by visiting the special website radarom.lt, where a person can make a bank transfer, specifying the purpose of the transfer – "radarom". Additionally, one can transfer money through the Paypal electronic payment system using [email protected].

Like last year, the organizers invite the business community of Lithuania to join the action. All business companies will be listed on the radarom.lt website.

According to Rubryka's report, the event will run for four weeks and culminate in a special broadcast on television, radio, and the LRT portal on February 24, which marks the second anniversary of Russia's full-scale aggression. The LRT TV channel will air a final charity concert in the evening.

For reference:

Last year in Lithuania, a coalition of four initiatives to support Ukraine started collecting 5 million euros for five modern air defense radars for Ukraine's armed forces.

During the promotion "Radarom!" in 2023, 14 million euros were collected, which were used to buy 17 radars for Ukraine.

Additionally, they purchased four cars for mobile radars and used the funds to buy 69 anti-drones and their accompanying equipment. They also covered the expenses for training radar operators in Ukraine.
