Moldovan blogger Necoglai handed over five drones to the Ukrainian army. As follows from the video on his Telegram channel, the blogger arrived in Kiev and met with representatives of the 63rd Separate Rifle Battalion (OSB) of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Nekoglai also said that he would give the military a certain car after he had repaired it. The military, in turn, gave the blogger a supply of army dry rations.
Until November 2022, Nekoglai (Nikolai Lebedev) lived in Moscow. After he published a tik-tok parodying a Russian serviceman, the blogger was detained, accused of violating immigration laws and deported to his homeland, to Moldova. Subsequently, Nekoglai said that after his arrest, he was subjected to abuse and torture by the police. According to him, the security forces stripped him, forced him to sit on a bottle, pulled out his hair with his hands and shaved his head.
The blogger promised to fight the Russian regime, and also announced that he would buy drones for $100,000 and hand them over to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In February, Russian authorities opened a criminal libel case against him at the request of Ekaterina Mizulina, head of the Safe Internet League.
