Help Ukraine in the war with russia


8 min read

About 8 years ago, the russian army had occupied Crimea and Donbas, immersing Ukraine in a state of war. But putin never admitted his soldiers were involved. Until the 24th of February, 2022. That day a week ago, almost immediately after putin announced war against Ukraine, the first bombardments in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, and Donbas began.

In Ukraine and even across Europe, we have entered unprecedented times. Who could have imagined that a full-scale war involving massive bombardments and shellings of towns with millions of residents would take place in the 21st century?

We are writing this article on 3rd March, the 8th day of Ukraine’s resistance. Even now, the russian army is bombarding our cities and villages, shelling our schools, universities, and hospitals, and killing hundreds of people, including children. Still, Ukrainians do everything in their power and even more to get the russian occupiers out of their lands.

We have already greatly benefited from the assistance your countries have already provided us in resisting russian aggression. Military and financial aid help Ukraine become stronger, increasing its resistance to russian aggression. The sanctions affect the economy of russia, making it harder and harder to allocate funds for their occupying army at the expense of the russian people’s wellbeing.


Supporting russian businesses means supporting the russian regime. By collaborating with their market players, businesses are investing in numerous war crimes that are occurring now. So we encourage everyone to:

A number of global businesses have already realized this (just to name a few)

It will be impossible for russia to finance a war if we isolate its economy from the outside world. In addition, the russian society may finally protest and overthrow the dictatorship. If not for the many lost lives of Ukrainians, then at least for their own comfort.


As we weaken the russian economy, we need to strengthen the Ukrainian economy as well. The effects of war will be felt in every area of the lives of Ukrainians. The situation may worsen if foreign companies and partners stop collaborating with our companies.

Ukraine has been going through a war of a smaller scale for eight years, so most of its companies are prepared to deal with this scenario. Plans have been made to continue operations during wartime, relocate staff, increase security, etc. So continue working with Ukrainian companies. This is the best source of support you can provide.

During these hard times, we are truly grateful to our clients for keeping their partnership with us. Let’s hope others follow your example.


The constant shelling and bombardment of Ukraine’s cities and villages caused many people to flee their homes. Some went to the west of the country. Others sought refuge in Europe.

Many of these people have left all of their belongings behind and need assistance finding a place to live, a job, and receiving financial aid for the first time. Provide them with this assistance.

Get in touch with your local authorities or the Ukrainian embassy to find out how and where you can help Ukrainian refugees in your country or city.


Our sincere appreciation goes to all the countries, companies, organizations, and individuals from abroad who supported us with sanctions against russia, military and humanitarian aid, donations, and peaceful protests. Every single action matters and will make a difference!

Ukraine’s resistance and unity proved to the world, and even to putin himself, that Ukraine has a powerful army, courageous people, and a strong will for freedom. Freedom is what we value most. And we will fight for it relentlessly.

We need your help in this battle. Sovereignty, wellbeing, and even the very existence of our nation are at stake.
