Ukraine Vice Prime Minister: ‘Even Memes Can Support Our Army’
The Ukrainian government will officially accept dogecoin donations, according to a Twitter announcement by Ukraine’s vice prime minister, Mykhailo Fedorov. Fedorov stated that meme assets such as dogecoin are more valuable than Russian rubles, and that “even [memes] can assist our army and save lives against Russian invaders.”
The country’s vice prime minister, Mykhailo Fedorov, announced the government’s acceptance of DOGE on his Twitter account. Fedorov even mentioned Billy Markus, the co-founder of the dogecoin network, and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. According to a Ukrainian official,
[dogecoin] exceeded [the] Russian ruble in value. We start to accept donations in meme coin. Now even [memes] can support our army and save lives from Russian invaders. DOGE owners of the world, [Elon Musk, Billy Markus], let’s do it.
In response to Fedorov’s post, DOGE co-founder Billy Markus tweeted, “Sent some.” “dogecoin users aren’t often wealthy, and dogecoin is primarily used for minor transactions, but we are a compassionate and dedicated group.” Those who want to help will do so – I hope the country can heal and rebuild stronger as a result of everything,” he continued.
