Ukraine opens NFT museum to preserve memory of Russian invasion

  • The museum is currently displaying 54 NFTs commemorating the first three days of the attack.
  • The museum’s website states that the NFTs will be sold in ETH from March 30th.
  • Government of Ukraine intends to use the proceeds to support the army and citizens.

Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation has launched an online museum of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to document key events of the war with Russia. Minister Mykhailo Fedorov announced this news in a tweet on March 25. According to reports, the museum will show the Ukrainian perspective of the war.

As Russia uses tanks to destroy Ukraine, we use revolutionary blockchain technology. NFT Museum @Meta_History_UA opens. It is a place that preserves the memory of the war. And the place to celebrate Ukrainian identity and freedom.

The NFTs in the museum show the events from 5:45 a.m. (local time) on February 24, when Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation in Ukraine’s Donbas region. 13 minutes later he launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

At the time of writing, 54 NFTs can be found on the museum’s website, with the last piece dating from the third day of the attack, February 26th. The collection includes a variety of events and sources, from Twitter posts from government officials to photos from news channels and reactions from world leaders.

The sale of these NFTs will start on March 30th and the backers will have to pay in Ethereum (ETH) . The money from this sale is intended to support the Ukrainian army and citizens.

NFT Museum aims to counteract fake news from Russia

Besides raising funds for its armed forces and citizens, Ukraine seems to be using its NFT museum to counter the Russian media. Since Russia invaded Ukraine, the media there have been heavily criticized for spreading fake news. The NFT Museum is dedicated to spreading truthful information in the digital community around the world.

Ukraine’s NFT efforts come after it canceled plans for an unspecified token airdrop as a way of reciprocating the crypto community’s support.

The country did not specify why it canceled the token airdrop. But Fedorov said that more and more people are ready to support Ukraine in the fight against Russia. To this end, the country decided to launch an NFT collection designed to support the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

This news comes as the crypto community continues to support Ukraine as the country has received over $108 million worth of donations in dedicated crypto wallets . In addition to individual donors, leading organizations such as Kraken and Binance have also done so . Someone even donated a Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT.
