How Roman.ua helps the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Since the start of the full-scale invasion, Roman.ua has been actively engaged in volunteer activities. The agency’s founder Roman Rybalchenko has been buying quadcopters, vehicles, and clothing for the military. The company also holds charity raffles for the needs of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine and joins the collections of trusted funds.

 Last update 06.09.2023 

For a year and a half of the full-scale war, we, as Roman.ua, have been donating to the army and we have not slowed down. As of August 2023, we have donated more than $55,000 to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and raised more than $11,000 in charity lotteries. We are grateful to our Clients and the entire Roman.ua team, thanks to whom we have the opportunity to donate and support the Armed Forces of Ukraine!

Read the full report below.

P.S. Of course, that doesn’t take into account each team’s assistance (donations to popular charitable foundations, humanitarian aid, TRO service, volunteering) and taxes (direct and indirect).

Who are we helping?


For the most part, it’s the first circle — those we know well. These are our defenders from Defense Intelligence, Special Operations Forces, Territorial Defence Forces, National Guard and Medical Forces, a scout of the Ukrainian Navy, Engineer forces of Ukraine.

We know these people well, so we don’t ask for photos or formal requests and appreciations from the units — they send some photos when they have time.

Foundations, volunteers and schools

Also, as a company, we donated to the:

Unfortunately, we can only show you a photo of the engine to avoid giving away too many details.

The economic front

Paying taxes 

We haven’t switched to reduced interest and tax holidays. And we keep paying the 5% EPT and the unified social contribution every month.
Furthermore, we received UAH 6,500 of support from the state and sent it to the Armed Forces to speed up the transition from one budget to another.

We support all our staff

We pay salaries to the entire team: those who have joined the TRO, interns, office managers, and part-timers. In the first months, we paid less than we did before the war, but each month since then, we have been raising the percentage to the “maximum” while the turnover has been recovering. Іn June, we reached the “pre-war” salary.

By doing our best at the economic front line, we will win together!
