Soledar’s Last Salt

"Artemsil" and "United24" launched the sale of the last salt that was mined before the occupation of Soledar. With the proceeds, Ukraine will purchase drones

One of the products that every Ukrainian knows from birth is salt from the Artemsil company. The packaging design has never changed: a cardboard package with a blue pattern, the inscription "Сіль (salt - ed). Ukrainian rock". 

Russia occupied Soledar, Donetsk region, where the mines of Artemsil were located, and destroyed mines and equipment. For the first time since WWII, the mines stopped. Salt from Artemsil disappeared from the shelves in the summer of last year. The most recognisable packaging of salt will also not be available soon: the Rubizhansk cardboard factory, where it was manufactured, locates in the occupied territory. An entire era has ended.

United 24 and Artemsil launched a soul-warming and valuable project for victory: 20.000 tons of salt, which were managed to be taken out of Soledar, were divided into 100.000 small packets with a recognisable design, only the inscription "сіль" was replaced with "міць" (strength — ed). Symbolic of the last salt "Strength. Ukrainian rock" can be bought for 500 ($14) in the popular stores' chain Silpo and on the Rozetka online platform. The funds will be directed to the formation of the Drone Army.

You can buy this packet of Ukrainian stone power only in Ukraine because, after the destruction of Artemsil, Soledar salt is recognised as a strategic product and is no longer available for export.

United24 started on May 5, 2022, and during that time Ukrainians and friends of Ukrainians from other countries donated $217 million for our victory.
