Timothy Snyder — New “United24” Ambassador

The scientist and Ukrainophile plans to raise $1.25 mln to buy "The Shahed Catcher"

Timothy Snyder, a historian and political scientist who studies Ukraine and popularizes its culture and history on the world stage, has become a member of the United24 team. Timothy Snyder's goal is to raise $1.25 million for The Shahed Catcher needed to protect Ukrainian cities.

"I am a historian and scientist, and in the future, I want to raise money for the restoration of libraries, schools and universities. But now we need to do something more urgent, which is to raise funds to help Ukraine defend itself against killer drones," Snyder.

This is a great joy for Ukrainians because, thanks to the scientist's work, millions of people worldwide have learned about Ukraine, its ancient and modern authentic history, international relations and identity.

"Timothy Snyder is a great friend of our state. In his writings, he explains to the whole world the importance of Ukraine, our true history and true values. Thank you for the fact that now more people will know not only about the reasons and conditions of our struggle but also about how they can help us," Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

In total, United24 has raised over $217 million since its inception. The ambassadors of the platform and Ukraine are Barbra Streisand, Demna Gvasalia, astronaut Scott Kelly and commander of SpaceX Inspiration 4 Jared Isaacman, Oleksandr Usyk, Andriy Shevchenko, Mark Hamil and other influential personalities.
