Our cause

  1. On February 24th, in continued attempts to protect his grip on power, destroy the young Ukrainian democracy resurrect the Soviet Union, Putin turned the hybrid war which he started in 2014, into a full scale invasion of Ukraine.
  2. By this crime against humanity, he is attacking not only Ukraine, but the freedom of speech, the right for self-determination, and respect for the international law, the key values governing any civilized society.
  3. Ukraine was occupied by the Soviet Union and Russian empire for several centuries and it gained independence only in 1991. Today, our young democracy needs help defending its sovereignty and democratic values against this brazen assault.
  4. Democratic countries’ governments have been providing unprecedented levels of aid in the form of money and weapons directly to the Ukrainian government and its entities.
  5. But a key element of success in the war is being overlooked - focused, confident & fearless soldiers. Our aim is to let our brave defenders have a peace of mind when they go into battle.
  6. Youkraine.org aims to provide direct financial help to the families of the fallen soldiers in the most difficult time of their life.
  7. Donate and help us honor their heroic sacrifice while helping their families rebuild their lives.

I was born and grew up in Ukraine back when it was still part of the USSR. Hence, I had a direct view of the Soviet state’s disregard for basic personal freedoms, prohibition of dissenting views and a deep hate for the democratic societies peddled by the propaganda machine, sounds familiar?

In the summer of 1991 at the age of seventeen, basketball gave me an opportunity to defect from the oppressive Soviet regime and ask for political asylum.

For the next 17 years I lived, studied, and worked in the US and Western Europe, but I always felt a force pulling me back to my motherland. In 2008, I decided that my skills and experience will be more useful and impactful in Ukraine, so I moved to Kyiv.

Since making the move, I have worked in management consulting supporting commercial and government clients as well as in the nonprofit sphere facilitating economic reforms, helping professionalize the civil service, mentoring youth and assisting disadvantaged Ukrainians affected by the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2014.

What motivates me most is the fact that on numerous occasions Vladimir Putin has publicly stated that the breakup of the USSR was the biggest tragedy of the 20th century and for over a decade, he has been methodically trying to rebuild Russia in the evil, old Soviet ways.

Don't lent him hold the world a hostage. He absolutely has to be stopped and the time is now. Donate to Youkraine.org and help Ukrainian defenders fight with all their might.

    F.A.Q..

    1

    What percentage of my donation will reach the families of the the fallen soldiers?

    100% of your donation minus banking/financial transaction fees (1-3% depending on the method you choose) will go directly to the aid recipients. All Youkraine.org team members have paying jobs and are doing this pro-bono to help Ukraine and Ukrainian people during these dire times.

    2

    Why should I donate to the families of the fallen soldiers, when there is an active war going on? Is it not better to donate money towards buying military equipment or medical supplies to help the war effort?

    In addition to weapons & medical supplies, there are huge sums being donated/allocated already by the friendly democratic governments. But at this point nobody is thinking about the key element of success - focused, confident & fearless soldiers. We are convinced, that the soldier will be more effective on the battle filed when they know that their family will be cared for if the soldier dies while bravely defending our motherland.

    3

    Why should you donate to Youkraine.org instead of other initiatives?

    First of all, you don't have to. Feel free to donate to plethora of other initiatives. However, at the moment we are the only initiative fundraising for the families of the fallen soldiers. Second, we have no overhead cost, donations directly go to qualified aid recipients. Third, unlike dealing with large organizations, you will see exactly where your donation went.

    4

    I heard Ukrainian government has promised to support the fallen soldiers’ families with a large onetime payment, why should I donate to this cause?

    The War is going on right now and our brave defenders are sacrificing their lives every day to protect the world from a mad man with nuclear weapons. Knowing how the government bureaucracy usually works it will be months if not longer before any money will reach their families. Your donation will provide an invaluable help in the time of most need.
