In addition to this recent acquisition, it is worth noting that, in December 2023, the Petro Poroshenko Foundation, in collaboration with the NGO "Sprava Hromad," also offered two sets of H10 Poseidon UAVs, specialized vehicles, and airsoft rifles designed for training purposes.

Each set includes three drones along with accompanying vehicles, with the overall equipment value exceeding 800,000 euros. Funding for this endeavor was provided by the community of Zhytomyr, as well as contributions from the Poroshenko Foundation and volunteers associated with the NGO Sprava Gromad.

The Leleka-100 UAS has been developed to tackle various tasks, including aerial reconnaissance, patrolling, and terrain mapping. It boasts the capability to transmit real-time operational data and obtain precise geographic coordinates. This system was officially adopted by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in May 2021 and is designed to operate effectively even in challenging radio signal environments, including situations involving intentional interference with radio signals or the blocking of satellite navigation systems.
