Nova Poshta's press service reported the information.

After the Russian military attacked Kharkiv on May 23, hitting the Factor-Druk printing house, part of the Vivat publishing house group, Ukrainians stepped up to show their support by ordering more Vivat books.

Nova Poshta then announced it would cover delivery costs for all parcels ordered by June 30.

"In the first 10 days, from May 25 to June 5, Nova Poshta delivered 5,484 parcels of Vivat books. This is four times more than during the same period previously," the logistics company reported.

The exact number of books in these nearly 5,500 parcels is unknown.

"This shows Ukrainians' readiness and willingness to support their own, especially in times of crisis," emphasized Nova Poshta.

Books with free delivery can be ordered from the publisher's website until the end of June.

Strike on typography in Kharkiv

On Thursday, May 23, Russia launched a missile attack on Kharkiv, targeting "Faktor-Druk," one of Europe's largest printing houses where books from almost all Ukrainian publishers are printed. The strike resulted in 7 deaths and 21 injuries. On May 25, Vivat Publishing House released the names of the seven people who were killed in the attack.

Faktor-Druk is part of the Faktor group of companies, which includes Vivat Publishing House and Vivat Bookstores. The printing house also produced books for other publishers. The Family Leisure Club publishing house confirmed that many of its books were printed at Faktor-Druk.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy reported that 50,000 books were destroyed. Serhiy Polituchyi, the owner of Faktor-Druk, stated that the attack would reduce the industry's capacity by 40%.

On May 27, Vivat Publishing House published a list of books destroyed in the Russian attack on the printing house.
