In addition to the Zelensky figure, a Molotov cocktail figure was also sold for $5. The blue and yellow patterns symbolizing the Ukrainian flag were drawn.
The figure was sold out immediately after online sales began on the 5th. Citizen Brick donated the $16,540 raised to a charitable organization that provides medical supplies in Ukraine.
At the time, Citizen Brick expressed his sincere gratitude to everyone who participated in the fundraising for Ukraine.
As the news spread, requests to sell additional figures followed. Citizen Brick produced additional Molotov cocktail figures with President Zelensky and resumed sales on the 16th, and they were all sold out in one day.
Citizen Brick said that it had raised more than $145,000 by selling all the figures, and it is difficult to make any more because the necessary parts are exhausted. Instead, he said he hopes to consider donating directly to the relevant charities.
