In New York, a New Year's fair was held at St. George's Cathedral, which raised funds for drones for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as reported Ukrinform.

American Ukrainians demonstrated different types of artistic needlework - pottery, spinning, drawing and sold their works.

Galina Shipko, the granddaughter of the outstanding Ukrainian muralist Mikhail Boychuk, who lives in New York state, demonstrated the art of spinning.

“Today is a good day, I think we will raise funds for 6-10 drones, which will immediately go to the front line,” said Dmitry Topchiy, executive director of the volunteer organization Liberty Ukraine Foundationwho hosted the event.

The fund, which specializes in helping the Armed Forces of Ukraine, has already sent a total of 1700 drones to the Ukrainian military.
