Recall that since the beginning of the war, Binance has announced the allocation of $10 million to resolve the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, and the Binance Charity initiative has launched raising funds to help Ukrainian refugees and children.

In April, the company issued a cryptocurrency Binance Refugee Card for Ukrainians forced to move to Europe due to the Russian invasion. In addition, the exchange launched a project of financial support for internally displaced persons in Ukraine.
