Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov has announced that Ukraine will sell NPTs inspired by the Russian invasion of the country to support the army and civilians economically.
The project supported by the Meta Museum History of War aims to commemorate the invasion, “spread truthful information” online and collect donations for Ukraine.
The 54 NFTs that make up the collection follow the detailed history of the Russian invasion, with pieces inspired by key moments of the conflict: starting with the February 24 announcement by Russian President Vladimir Putin of what he called a “special military operation” in Ukraine.
Each NFT in the series includes a digital work by an artist, some Ukrainian, some international, inspired by a news headline or a social media post related to the invasion.
Buyers will be able to buy NFTs with Ethereum, and all proceeds will go directly to the Ukrainian Ministry of Digital Transformation.
A representative of Ukrainian institutions told Forbes that the modalities of the sale would be announced in the coming days. He also said he hoped the project could raise millions of dollars to support Ukraine.
According to the same source, other NFTs are in the works because the museum plans to create digital collectibles to “continue to represent history until the end of this terrible war.”
