‘Estonia shows incredible support for Ukraine, we can feel it. You can be walking in the street and people greet you saying ‘Glory to Ukraine!’
Petro Poroshenko’s wife, Maryna, who was also involved in the effort, said the new drones can become true guardian angels for Ukrainian soldiers and civilians.
The former president also commented the Russian air assault in Vinnytsya that left 23 people dead including three children.
