New Delhi, May 8: Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s famous khaki fleece has been sold at a UK fundraising auction for 90,000 pounds ($110,000).

The jumper went for an astonishing amount at the Brave Ukraine fundraising event hosted by the Ukraine Embassy at the Tate Modern in London.

According to the report, the starting price of the garment was initially set at 50,000 pounds, however, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged prospective buyers to bid “much higher”. He asked people to dig deep and spend big, following which the hammer came down at almost double the price.

It is to mention that Zelensky is known for his trademark green military fatigues. He was pictured touring besieged Kyiv in the khaki fleece.

The significant event boasted other lots as well, including a cockerel jug presented to Johnson during his walkabout with Zelensky in the Ukrainian capital. Also up for grabs was a guided tour of Kyiv by the city’s mayor Vitali Klitschko.
