I’ve been very involved in a lot of humanitarian and medical aid projects together with the United24 fundraising platform. Founder — is the president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy. It's very important to remember: the war is still going. But most important — to stay beside Ukraine and help. Thank you so much," Andriy Shevchenko.
