A Czech crowdfunding campaign has successfully raised more than $1.30m (£1.17m) to buy a modernised tank for the Ukrainian army. Dubbed "a gift for Putin", the campaign received donations from 11,288 individual donors, and organisers say it is the first purchase of its kind.
The modernised Soviet-era T-72 tank named Tomas will be sent to Ukraine. The fund was backed by the Czech defence ministry.
