Marking one year since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Revolut is partnering with grassroots UK-based charity British-Ukranian Aid.

Revolut and its customers have collectively raised more than £10m over the past year, and the fintech is now hoping to further support victims of the war with the new partnership.

It has also added a new feature within its donations platform called ‘Collections’, which groups together charities around a common cause, with British-Ukrainian aid leading the list of partners of the Ukraine appeal.

“As a truly volunteer-run charity, driven by a growing community of supporters, we are happy to establish cooperation with Revolut,” British-Ukranian Aid trustee Andrii Mykhailov said.

“Together, we will be able to increase the reach and scope of assistance for vulnerable people in need. We are asking all friends of British-Ukrainian Aid and Revolut to join the appeal and donate.”

Both of Revolut’s founders have been steadfast and vocal in their critiques of Russia over the war against Ukraine.

Co-founder and CEO Nik Storonsky, who was born in Ukraine, renounced his Russian citizenship last October.

Almost a year ago to the day, Revolut’s co-founder and CTO Vlad Yatsenko took to Twitter to criticise Vladimir Putin for invading Ukraine, calling him a “brazen liar”. 

“As a British-Ukrainian citizen, I thank everyone for the ongoing support and I invite you to join Revolut and British-Ukrainian Aid in helping those who need it most right now,” Yatsenko said.

“With Revolut and British-Ukrainian Aid 100 per cent of your donations go to charity.”

British-Ukrainian Aid says it is in direct contact with those in need on the ground, assessing what people need and providing immediate help for emergency and relief operations.
