The initiative of the President of Ukraine, United24 fundraising platform, has been officially presented to American political and business circles, foreign diplomats and public figures in Washington, the United States.

The presentation took place in Ukraine House on June 3, 2022, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The United States is the first country we are officially presenting the United24 platform in,” Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Oksana Markarova said in a commentary to Ukrinform.

According to Markarova, dozens of the top managers of leading companies, partner organizations, foreign ambassadors and American politicians came to Ukraine House. They listened to the speeches delivered by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who actually initiated the United24 platform, Ukrainian Digital Transformation Minister Mykhailo Fedorov and other Ukrainian government officials, who explained the new concept.

The United24 initiative is a fundraising platform intended to become “the main window for collecting donations in support of Ukraine”. These funds are credited to the accounts of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) and transferred to relevant ministries to meet the essential needs in three areas: defense and demining; medical aid; Ukraine’s reconstruction.

“The United24 platform protects you from delays, intermediaries and fraud, and the funds raised will be immediately spent on what is necessary,” the United24 initiators say.

The United24 website offers reports on expenditures, which are now updated on a weekly basis. In this regard, Markarova noted that the new platform does not compete with the existing initiatives and is aimed at involving the general public in providing support to Ukraine.

One can make a donation through different means, including credit cards, bank transfers, PayPal or cryptocurrency.

As of June 4, 2022, more than $51.3 million was raised via the United24 platform.
