Dear friends! We are happy to present you the project of New Mexico Cine Drone in Santa Fe. We Ukrainian Americans of NM currently strongly supporting this, because it is closely connected with the physical destruction of Russian invaders, SAVING lives of Ukrainian soldiers and ACCELERATING the WAR ENDING!!!

New Mexico Cine Drone is a small business founded by Luke Fitch in Santa Fe, and has been building and flying unmanned aircraft for over a decade. Since the beginning of the Russian war against Ukraine, they have been coordinating with the Armed Forces of Ukraine on a number of drone-related projects intended for their use. Theirs first project was a system for converting ordinary vehicles into remote-control devices. These are used to clear minefields and other dangerous areas, and were delivered by Fitch to Ukraine in May of 2022. A number of new projects have been born from this trip and the meetings with Ukrainian military representatives.

Nowadays Luke is working on a new prototypes with improvements, that intend to make drones more effective in their field of work in Ukraine (due to reasonable sense we cannot share technical details so far).

The next delivery of theirs prototype under development is planned for early August, and all together we are actively raising funds to enable this goal. Rob Mesa and Luke Fitch will transport and assemble the drone systems, and will also bring donated medical and humanitarian supplies.

By this time Cine Drones is short of funds for that development and trip expenses.

As it is really needed to SAVE lives of civilians and Ukrainian soldiers and to ACCELERATE the WAR ENDING, we ASK all not indifferent people to help in as much as possible to make the prototype real and to deliver needed goods to Ukraine.
