Juho Taskila from the Lion Defense Team was receiving the donation in Oulu:

“I warmly thank Wetteri for this support, the work of our association would not be possible without donations or our volunteers. It is great that in Finland there is a desire to help our association and, above all, a desire to help Ukraine. The car will start driving our team already in April.”
