Quote from Fedorov: "UNITED24 ambassadors have united to raise money for 1,000 generators for Ukrainian hospitals. For the first time, six ambassadors are raising funds for one goal."

Details: Astronaut Scott Kelly, football coach Andrii Shevchenko and boxer Oleksandr Usyk came to Kyiv to meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Tennis player Elina Svitolina, historian Timothy Snyder and actor and director Liev Schreiber joined via video conference.

To promote the fundraising, Kelly, together with Shevchenko and Usyk, took part in the filming of videos that took place in the evening in a lightless Kyiv.

Svitolina will dedicate her charity evening to the fundraising for generators. The event will take place on 2 December in Monaco. Liev Schreiber started his fundraising a few days ago; the famous actor and director wrote the script for the promotional video. Historian Timothy Snyder shared the details of fundraising for the "Shahed Catcher", a powerful anti-drone system that will be able to protect infrastructure facilities from Iranian-made drones.

"During their meeting with the President, the ambassadors gave assurances they would do everything to help Ukrainian doctors with generators," Fedorov reported.
