They are patronised by Anna Yevstihnieieva and Anton Pushkar (Band Love’n’Joy and Crime Records studio), Lesyk Omodada (studio Shpytal records, bands Tik Tu and Omodada Gee), Yura Bazaka and Katia Voichuk – culture agency kontrabass promo.
Katia Voichuk told SLUKH about the fund foundation process, whom it helps, the way it assures the international music community to donate to the military needs and who has got the aid in the form of walkie-talkies, bulletproof vests, thermal imagers, and first aid kits from Musicians Defend Ukraine. She also explained why the fund should continue its work even after the war.
