      I’m still subscribed as I used VisitUkraine.Today as my information source on entering Ukraine, especially during the coronavirus years (yes, I visited when I could). It’s still there with information on how to enter Ukraine, including checking curfews and

      4. Be ready for the sound of air alarms. The threat of a missile attack can happen in any region or city of Ukraine. Download the “Air Raid” mobile application (from Google Play Market or AppStore) to instantly receive notifications of air raid alerts in the selected city.

      Today’s e-mail was sad; there are requests for small dollar donation amounts to “help to give Ukrainians light and warmth.” I’m tempted, but I have my doubts that it would be used for the stated purposes – and we’re already helping some in Ukraine directly.

      The complete e-mail is:

      GREETINGS FROM VISIT UKRAINE!
      The light that illuminates liberty!

      In the eternal struggle of two opposing forces, good always wins over evil. Both of these forces are powerful, but one of them is noble, life-giving, and the other is terrible, cruel, destructive.

      Cynicism, cruelty and treachery of russia shocked the whole world. First, through the attack and illegal annexation of Ukrainian territories, then through the rocket attacks on residential buildings and the killing of civilians, then – torture and abuse of both civilians and military, now – the genocide of Ukrainians by depriving them of communications before winter.

      They regularly hit critical infrastructure, leaving millions of Ukrainians without electricity, water, heating, communications… Having failed to take Ukraine by force, putin seems to believe that darkness and cold will break our will and thirst for freedom, democracy, and victory over the enemy.

      Our power engineers, electricians, public utilities and rescuers perform a feat every day, faithfully doing their job, returning light and warmth to our homes. But as of today, in some regions the situation is critical – forced emergency power cuts are introduced, which last for hours.

      Unfortunately, not every Ukrainian has the opportunity to prepare for an extremely difficult winter in order not to freeze in their own homes. Therefore, together we must provide the basic needs of those who need it.

      We need your help to give Ukrainians light and warmth. We are currently raising funds for:

      Power banks (donate 10$)
      Flashlights (donate 5$)
      Warm blankets (donate 7$)
      Equipment for bomb shelters – warm seats (donate 3$)
      Or package assistance (donate 25$)

      You can donate any amount in a convenient way from any corner of the world.

      Light always conquers darkness!

      One day Ukraine will win and shine again, and our enemies will fade away forever.

      For more information, please contact the 24-hour hotline of the visitukraine.today portal!

      that that money will actually get to those in need. If not directly fraudulent, every handler along the way is skimming from it. Its absolutely shitty, that we have no choice but to be so cynical about it, but that’s what we get with corrupt governments both in the east and the west, escalating violence and profiteering off the misery of Ukrainians. So much dishonesty and media manipulation that anyone with 2 functioning brain cells can’t help but to sigh with a heavy heart, but turn away.
