Welcome to UkrainianArmyHelp.com. This site was created by two Ukrainians, Oleksiy Shevchukevych and Ievgen Benzar. Oleksiy is a Ukrainian immigrant who moved to United States back in 2001 and Ievgen is his classmate who currently lives in Western Ukraine.
In the summer of 2021, Oleksiy visited his family and friends in Ukraine. They couldn’t even imagine what their homeland had gone through in a short while. The sequence of events happening in Ukraine since February 24th 2022 seems out of every person’s nightmare.
The whole world watched in disbelieve as Russia air-striked the cites of Kiyev, Kharkiv, Odessa and many others. The reaction was instantaneous in the form of sanctions that do hurt but don’t change anything. Ukrainian army is facing very well armed and equipped Russian contractors who don’t really care about who they fire at.
Many of Oleksiy and Ievgen’s friends are mobilized in Ukrainian army now. Most of them are in the war risking their lives every day. Some were killed or seriously injured. Ievgen communicates with those who are at war every day and he has learned that soldiers under the fire don’t have proper financial backup.
The idea of creating such a website came after Oleksiy had shipped a military helmet from the US to one of his classmates who was fighting in a first escalation back in 2014. Ievgen was able to deliver the helmet directly bypassing any 3rd party organizations. The guys became confident that they can deliver help directly to soldiers who are fighting for their country. Right now we have a direct channel of sending financial support via crypto-currency which guarantees rapid delivery.
