Since 2018, we have been promoting and popularizing Ukrainian tourism on the domestic and foreign markets, but the war has made its own adjustments. We have been working on the information front for more than a year and a half.
Since February 24, 2022, we have provided consultations to more than 300 thousand people, and more than 14.7 million users have used the information on the portal, almost 5 million of whom are foreigners. And, of course, we did not forget to help the army by transferring more than UAH 1.3 million for the needs of the military (by purchasing the necessary ammunition, drones, thermal imagers and antiseptics), civilians (to support IDPs, equipping bomb shelters and other shelters), and we did not forget about our younger friends - animals affected by the war. In particular, we help shelters that rescue and keep them.
At the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Visit Ukraine donated 100 thousand hryvnias to the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
