The Governor of Dnepropetrovsk region undertook supply of army with fuels and lubricants, other businessmen paid for bullet-proof vests and food for soldiers.
Boris Filatov, the first assistant of the oligarch and governor Igor Kolomoyskiy told how the head of the region sponsors the Ukrainian army. Previously leaders of the operation command South addressed Kolomoyskiy with a request to help with fuel for military machinery.
According to Mr. Filatov, Igor Kolomoyskiy provided 50% of military bases of the Southern Operation Command and 100% of detachments of Dnepropetrovsk and Kherson regions with fuel at his own expense. He also noted that other Ukrainian businessmen already provide soldiers with food, bullet-proof vests and everything necessary.
