A ministry of Ukrainian government crowdfunding campaign has raised more than $2 million to send Russian President Vladimir Putin to Jupiter.
This tongue-in-cheek campaign was first launched on March 2, when Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov posted a tweet promoting the crowdfunding campaign. The proposed goal of their campaign is simple: send the Russian president in a rocket and blast him into space.
Everyone wants Putin dead. In the meantime, we are giving Ukrainians and the whole world a unique opportunity: to send Putin to Jupiter. Donate $2.99 for a rocket.
100 million [million] the good citizens of Earth can send the unique Evil to Jupiter. Why Jupiter? It is a gas giant and the largest planet in the solar system.
The Ukrainian government is aiming to raise at least $100 million to provide the Russian president with a free one-way ticket to the gas giant. Fedorov also called Tesla CEO Elon Musk to help send Putin to Jupiter.
However, it has been revealed that all funds from this campaign will be used to help the Ukrainian Armed Forces and to rebuild Ukraine’s destroyed infrastructure.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine began last month with more than 1,834 civilian casualties reported by the United Nations. Recently, the United States announced an $800 military support package to be sent to Ukraine that will contain 100 switchblade killer drones.
