"I’m not in military. Yes, I can do what I can do. If I can help in this, in this side of life, you know, it’s really good for me. // It’s very important and we understand how much – how, a huge amount of donations, huge number of people who want to support Ukraine. We understand it and we try to do our best.”

All of the proceeds will go to organizations

that support humanitarian and

emergency medical aid to Ukrainians
