CD Projekt RED donates over €200,000 in humanitarian aid to Ukraine

The video game industry has also mobilised to help Ukraine in this situation, with various initiatives.


The last days of February were darkened by the latest international news: Russia has launched an invasion of Ukraine , and the media leaves us with shocking images of bombings and deaths. The video games industry has not stood idly by and various Ukrainian developers have already appealed to the rest of the world for help.

CD Projekt RED has listened to these pleas for help, and has not delayed in responding with a significant donation to minimise the impact of the war: “We are shocked and outraged by the recent invasion of Ukraine, our friends and neighbours. In solidarity with all the victims of this aggression, the CD Project Group has decided to support the humanitarian relief efforts by donating 1 million zlotys ( more than 216,000 euros ) to PAH (Polish Humanitarian Aid Organisation).”

“We cannot remain indifferent to such injustice and we ask everyone to join forces and help in any way possible . Together we can make a big difference!” reads the thread posted by the Polish developer. This complements the decision of 11 bit studios , the authors of This War of Mine, to donate 100% of sales to the Ukrainian Red Cross Foundation.

Much of the planet is following the conflict through the media in each country. It should be noted, however, that we have already seen cases of disinformation: as we reported a few hours ago, several of the most viewed videos on Facebook about the war in Ukraine are actually from a video game.
