    Every week, UAV strike teams destroy enemy equipment, ammunition depots and personnel. In particular, this week, 189 units of equipment were destroyed. Within the Army of Drones, the operators are provided with the technology to work productively and efficiently. Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister for Innovation, Education, Science and Technology Development and Minister of Digital Transformation, told more about the project, the work of the UNITED24 fundraising platform and the Mriya app during a national telethon.

    "Since June, the UAV strike squads and special forces that we provide as part of the Army of Drones have destroyed 1,280 units of russian military equipment. This is hundreds of millions of dollars. A USD 500 drone can destroy an occupier's tank worth USD 3 to 5 million. This year we will manage to scale up UAV production 100 times. Therefore, there will be more destroyed equipment," said Mykhailo Fedorov.

    The Deputy Prime Minister also spoke about the UNITED24 fundraising platform. Since its launch, people and businesses from 110 countries have donated more than USD 459.6 million through the platform.

    "The main task of UNITED24 is to attract resources and attention from around the world to support Ukraine. The platform's ambassadors and partners help us with this. We have recently completed the Unity fundraiser. We announced our cooperation with the Glovo. I am grateful to our partners for their systematic support," added Mykhailo Fedorov.

    The Deputy Prime Minister also told about the Mriya project. This is an educational app that will help children develop faster and will become a convenient tool for interaction between students, parents and teachers. The app will provide educational content, information on the development of innovations, and the opportunity to learn about grants, projects, etc. Currently, the Mriya is scheduled to be launched in beta testing by the end of the year, and the project will be scaled up to schools across the country starting next year.
