Lykhoviy announced this on his Facebook page.
"Like Vakhtang Kipiani, I was shocked and moved when Svitlana Povalyaeva told me that Roman Ratushnyy had respect for our publication and bequeathed his combat bonus to support a bandura orchestra, the Shevchenko House Museum, Historical Pravda, and Novynarnia. It is a great honor for me and a recognition of what we do. And today I already received a transfer of UAH 100,000 from Svitlana, my classmate and good friend," he wrote.
Lykhoviy announced the creation of the Roman Ratushnyy News Fund for Journalists.
"With a sufficient royalty fund, Novynarnia can now write more and better about those who, like Roman Ratushnyy, are bringing Ukraine's victory closer. The volunteers, the servicemen of the UAF, the National Guard, and other security agencies. The heroes fighting for Ukraine. It will be a series of exclusive pieces, illustrated interviews, and reports on those currently in the army. With increased royalties (up to 4/5 thousand UAH) and marked "Roman Ratushnyy News Prize Fund," said Lykhoviy, and encouraged people to send him a private message or write to his editorial email.
