What is actually happening in Ukraine and how you can help
We ask for your support and help in these dark times for Ukraine and the world.
After eight years of military aggression against Ukraine Russia has launched an unprecedented full-scale war against our country. Russian invasion has the potential of becoming bigger and even deadlier than any other conflict that took place in Europe since World War II. United in rage and determination, Ukrainians are fighting the aggressor on all fronts.
We at the Ukrainian Institute would like to share some updates and requests with you.
How you can HELP Ukraine.
📌 Our team keeps receiving hundreds of requests and inquiries on how to help Ukraine. The most important things we ask you to do right now are:
read and share verified information about Russia’s attack on Ukraine, e.g.:
📌 Donate funds to support the Ukrainians in this fight and encourage your family, friends and networks to do so:
- Come Back Alive, a charity that has effectively raised over USD 21.5 million for the army and humanitarian needs since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014.
- A special account created recently by the National Bank of Ukraine. All funds accumulated on this account will be used solely to procure supplies and otherwise support the Armed Forces of Ukraine;
📌 Join or organise peaceful protests and rallies in your cities. Your governments are much more likely to proportionately respond to the world’s most outrageous military aggression in contemporary history if they see a clear message from their citizens, that is YOU;
📌We ask you to suspend all your projects that involve Russian institutions and individuals and not engage in any cooperation with Russian culture or education sector. Please make sure you communicate your decision publicly and issue a formal statement outlining your decision. You may use the hashtag #CancelRussia, along with #StandWithUkraine, #StopRussianAggression.
The international cultural community has the power to help put an end to this war. We ask for your support in the name of democratic values, peace, truth, and freedom of choice.

Peace for us all,
