Ukraine Government Cancels Crypto Airdrop, Charity Donors Want Refunds

Crypto Twitter is asking the Ukrainian government for a refund.


Following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, military and humanitarian causes raised funds through various means. From traditional charity campaigns, marathon gaming events, and even crypto, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised for these groups. Unfortunately, the latter seems to have attracted a bunch of very online people who were only involved for their own benefit.

The widely reported crypto airdrop that the Ukrainian government was planning has been called off. Rather than respect the decision of a government that has its hands full in the face of an invasion by one of the biggest armies in the world, some “investors” are demanding repayments. They even go so far as to accuse the country of staging an intentional rug draw.

“After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the parachute drop,” Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov announced. “Every day there are more and more people ready to help Ukraine repel aggression [sic]. Instead, we will soon announce NFTs to support the Ukrainian Armed Forces.”

Rather than being thrilled to get some of those JPEGs they love so much instead, those who donated crypto are behaving like misled investors.

“I want my money back! Metamask support please contact me ASAP!!!” wrote one donor.

“Wtf? You can’t incentivize people to donate and then remove the incentive after they’ve donated,” said another. “You must refund everyone who donated after your token airdrop promise.”

An NFT profile picture even gets a bit ominous with its message: “if you cancel the airdrop, we cancel you”. We will have to wait and see how their efforts to cancel the whole Ukrainian country go.

Luckily, there are others in the answers telling these people to pull themselves together. Asking for your donation back from a country that is currently a victim of war crimes is not a good idea.
