Volodymyr Zelensky's fleece sells for $110,000 at Ukraine fundraiser
A khaki zip-up fleece worn by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky sold for $110,000 (£90,000) at a fundraiser for Ukraine in London on Thursday.
The now-iconic item was sold at the Brave Ukraine fundraiser at the Tate Modern art gallery, hosted by the Ukrainian embassy.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke at the fundraiser. He called the fleece's starting price of £50,000 "a snip".
"I want much higher bids than that," Johnson said.
Since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine on 24 February, Zelensky has almost always been seen wearing military-green clothing, including the khaki fleece.
The style choice has been commended as a sign of respect for Ukraine's military, which has lost thousands of soldiers in the defence of the country.
Zelensky's attire has also been contrasted with Russian President Vladimir Putin's expensive designer apparel.
The Ukrainian president's look has even been replicated by other world leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron.
