Ukrinform reports this with reference to GSA News.
“Hollywood superstar, famed for his role in the hit movie ‘Titanic,’ Leonardo DiCaprio, has transferred ten million US dollars to the Ukrainian government as the war rages on between Russia and Ukraine. Presumably, the huge donation is meant to support the war efforts as well as humanitarian efforts within the country,” the report says.
It is noted that DiCaprio, who has Ukrainian roots through his maternal grandmother, has strongly condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine – joining a huge number of other celebrities around the world to have done so. Some Ukrainian-born celebrities have even flown back home from other countries to fight for their homeland a few days after the war started.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has called on the world for both military and financial support as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine takes a high toll on the country.
As Ukrinform reported, the National Bank of Ukraine has decided to open a special fundraising account to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The full information is available on the central bank’s website.
