Drone School for a Defender
The Slots City Foundation’s assistance enables military personnel to receive free training at the UA Drone School every month. Here is another story about those who were able to take advantage of this aid.
The call sign of this young woman is Puma. When Russian forces invaded Ukraine, she was 19 years old. Despite her education, Puma was determined to help defend her country.
Puma applied to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, but she was not accepted. This did not stop her from wanting to serve, so she joined a volunteer unit. Puma received her weapon kit, underwent training, and began performing reconnaissance and defense tasks alongside other defenders. In the battles to liberate the Kyiv region, Puma proved herself to be a true warrior and dedicated defender of her country.
After successful missions, Puma returned to the rear and began actively preparing for the next combat operations against the aggressors. Her desire to learn was not only driven by military necessity. Her desire to prove her readiness for battle and become better was also fueled by frequent cases of biased attitudes towards her age by commanders.
One of the opportunities to improve her skills for Puma was training at the UA Drone School. The professional use of modern copters not only helps in carrying out combat operations but also saves lives. The girl completed both the basic course and the fast FPV drone control course, and became the best student in her class.
“For us, it is a great joy to see such incredible defenders who, despite prejudices and obstacles, move forward. We sincerely wish the girl success on her path to our victory over the aggressor,” say the instructors of UA Drone School.
Assisting the Drone School is a direction that the Slots City Fund started in January. Every month, the fund transfers funds for free military training at UA Drone School, a project of the public organization AD “Advanced Defence”, which was launched in April 2022 in response to the challenges of Russian aggression against Ukraine. UA Drone School is part of the state project “Army of Drones.”
In total, volunteers of the Slots City Foundation handed over more than 100 transfers to the front over the past year, these are 19 drones, 30 cars, including trucks, thermal imagers, generators, as well as other equipment, gear, and clothing for soldiers.
