The Commander in Chief of Ukraine’s Army, General Valeriy Zaluzhnyi donated $1 million to the military from an inheritance he received from a Ukrainian American, Gregory Stepanets, the New York Times reported.

I gave my whole life to the Armed Forces. And I had no doubt what I should do with the inheritance,” Zaluzhnyi said. “Mr. Hryhoriy’s last will was obviously to support the Ukrainian army through my person. I am grateful to everyone who helps the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And I am grateful to my family for their understanding.

The press service of the armed forces clarified that all money from the inheritance was donated to the army.
