Taxi service Uber is back on the road in the city of Kharkiv "for the purpose of supporting the rebuilding of the city," a message released by the company on Sept. 26 reads.

For the first month, Uber is offering a 50% discount on all rides. Also, the company will not charge a service fee – so 100% of the cost of trips will go to local drivers.

“We believe that recent developments in Kharkiv Oblast will encourage more businesses and citizens to return to the city to restore its life and economy as soon as possible,” said Marchin Mochirog, regional general manager of Uber in Central and Eastern Europe.
