The Lotto Max jackpot winner, Marcel Lussier, who picked up his $70 million cheque on Friday in Montreal, said he wants to spend part of his money to help rebuild Ukraine.

That's according to CTV News, Ukrinform reports.

The man is also willing to fund projects to help people with autism.

"It was a normal day like the others, no stress," he said about the win. "I was calm, natural."
