“Over 750,000 euros, funds raised so far, with the help of the” We Are One “concert for the people of Ukraine. And the counting continues until tomorrow, when we know the final figures. It is the biggest event of its kind to date, dedicated to those who need so much support these days. I am proud that the Capital City Hall has supported this event along with Saga, Pro TV, Kiss FM and the Red Cross. Together with Paun Rohovei, Ukraine’s Charge d’Affaires ad interim to Romania, we thanked the Romanian and international artists for their efforts. We thank the almost 2,000 people who were able to work miracles in just one week and staged this show. I also thanks the tens of thousands of people who were at the National Arena last night. We all have something to be proud of, as Romanians. We are a good nation, our efforts will not stop here. The fight for identity, freedom and democracy continues in Ukraine and these are the values in which we, Romanians, believe,” wrote Nicusor Dan on Facebook.
