On March 25, Mykhailo Fedorov, Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine and Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, announced on his official Twitter account the launch of an NFT museum where the most memorable events of the Ukrainian-Russian conflict will be displayed.
This appears to be the materialization of an idea first revealed by Alex Bornyakov and reported by CryptoPotato on March 14.
According to Fedorov, the museum will serve as a place to celebrate “Ukrainian identity and freedom”, preserving the memory of the events that took place from February 24, when Russia launched its attack on Ukraine.
While Russia uses tanks to destroy Ukraine, we rely on revolutionary blockchain technology. @Meta_History_UA NFT Museum is launched. The place to keep the memory of the war. And the place to celebrate Ukrainian identity and freedom. Look here: https://t.co/IrNV0w54tg

In addition, the NFT Museum will serve to collect donations to help the Ukrainian people overcome these difficult times.
Cryptocurrencies and NFTs are joining forces to help Ukraine.
In this Russian war against Ukraine, cryptocurrencies have proven their potential to help a country and its citizens economically. They have also raised awareness of a community of enthusiasts who want to support human life beyond any side or political hue.
According to the NFT Museum’s official website, 100% of the proceeds from the NFT sale “go directly to the official crypto accounts of the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine” to support both Ukrainian troops and civilians.
The NFT Museum was established to leave a mark on history. The Ukrainian government wants future generations to know how they lived through the war and what it meant to their people.
“The formula of each NFT is clear and simple: each token is a real news piece from an official source and an illustration of artists, both Ukrainian and international […] We will never let a day of this period disappear from the ledger of world history.”
