I feel sorry for these people, they do not know how to rejoice – Prytula about the haters of the satellite
Up to 8 million Ukrainians joined the collection of funds spent on the acquisition of the ICEYE satellite for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. However, not everyone was happy about this news and began to hate such a purchase.
Volunteer, head of the “Sergey Prytula Charitable Foundation” Serhiy Pritula told channel 24 what he thinks about the ill-wishers of the “people's satellite”.
Prytula is sure that the critics of the project were unfairly looking for treason and ” doomed to marginalization”.
Someone suddenly comes out and starts manipulating some data, looking for betrayal where it is not necessary. I feel sorry for these people as a human being, they do not know how to rejoice in common successes, they want to rejoice only in their own, – said Prytula.
The volunteer added that the financial side of the agreement on the acquisition of the ICEYE satellite was provided by 7 to 8 million Ukrainians. According to him, one transaction can involve several people or a large company with even more philanthropists.
In addition, Prytula announced new charitable projects in which Ukrainians can take part.
< p>“We will continue to unite people, the country and society. We will propose some projects where every Ukrainian will feel his involvement and his contribution to our future victory. Perhaps this is what we need to do now, and not try to separate society again,” – the volunteer summed up.
