Actor “Star Wars” Met with Ukrainian Defenders

The actor and ambassador of the fundraising platform "United24" Mark Hamill and the military shared details regarding success in their niches of warfare 

Hollywood actor and Ukrainian military met online. The minister of digital transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov announced this. During the meeting, representatives of the armed forces of Ukraine shared the successes and intricacies of working with intelligence drones, which Mark Hamill helped to buy.

"Reconnaissance drones save the lives of the military and civilians. Thanked for the collection of powerful drones RQ-35 Heidrun," said Fedorov.

The Star Wars actor, who played the leading jedi Luke Skywalker, has already raised more than $705.000 for drones for Ukraine. The ambassador continues to help, so the Ukrainian army is constantly improving the quality and efficiency of data collection from critical points in the war.

"First of all, I want to say that I am honoured to meet with you. I play a warrior in a movie, and you are the real heroes of a real war," Hamill said at the meeting.

He reminded the soldiers of their resilience because Russia believed it would defeat Ukraine in less than 4 days. But the Ukrainian armed forces have opposed the aggressor for over a year. He also said that he considers the country's defenders real heroes and believes in victory. In the end, Mark Hamill added that he would continue to help to victory over the Russian Federation.
