Pussy Riot co-founder Nadya Tolokonnikova has joined forces with two groups in the cryptocurrency sphere to generate funds for Ukrainian civilian groups amid the Russian invasion. Their new digital organization, Ukraine DAO, will sell 10,000 NFTs of the Ukrainian flag, minted on Ethereum, and another, unique NFT of the flag. The first auction launches on Saturday (February 26) at 12 p.m. Eastern, running for 72 hours.

Tolokonnikova told Decrypt that they chose the Ukrainian flag “because it’s not about any specific artists or aesthetics—it’s about something much bigger than all of us, it’s a pure gesture of solidarity.” She added, “Activism is the only reason I joined Web3. Now, when I’m so deeply ashamed of my government, I simply have to try to help Ukrainians.” All proceeds will benefit Return Alive Foundation and NGO Proliska.
