The “Donate To Evacuate” initiative, launched by students of the Kyiv School of Economics together with the KSE Foundation and the Charitable Foundation for the Development of Defense Capability of Ukraine, thanks to the First soloist of the English National Ballet Katja Khaniukova and benefactors, has already collected more than $2,000,000 for the purchase of medevac helicopters and for special rescue operations for the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine!

We would like to express our special thanks to the Ukrainian prima, the First soloist of the English National Ballet, Katja Khaniukova, who helped gather a whole galaxy of world stars for a charity performance at the National Opera of Ukraine. Thank you for the national spirit and attitude!

There are no spheres “outside politics” and out of war. Funds collected thanks to world-class artists will allow the purchase of evacuation helicopters, which will save hundreds and thousands of lives of Ukrainian soldiers!

The amount of donations collected during the charity ballet evening at the National Opera of Ukraine was twice as much as was planned at the start of the project.

Employees of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine express their gratitude to everyone who contributed money and helped in the implementation of the “Donate To Evacuate” charity initiative. This help is very important for every scout warrior!

The collection was supported by many Ukrainians, foreigners, a number of business companies, representatives of creative industries and the world of art.

The names of people and names of companies that made contributions of $100 or more to support the soldiers of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine will be printed on the sides of medevac helicopters in the form of a camouflage pattern. Donate:

Let’s protect Ukraine together!

Let’s move to victory together!

Glory to Ukraine!
