Drive awareness of Russia's war on Ukraine
Russia’s war against Ukraine began in 2014, when Russia invaded and occupied Crimea and parts of the east Ukrainian oblasts of Luhansk and Donetsk. It has killed almost 14,000 people, wounded more than 30,000 and displaced more than 1.5 million people. Today, Russia has amassed over 130,000 troops on Ukraine’s border and has threatened a further invasion of Ukraine. Russia’s actions are a threat to European security and the rules-based international order established after World War II. Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity must be protected from further aggression by Russia. For more information on this conflict and why it matters for Albertans and Canadians, please visit the FAQ page.
To continue informing Albertans about Russia’s aggression on Ukraine, please consider posting about Russia’s war on Ukraine on social media using the hashtag #StandWithUkraine #AlbertaStandsWithUkraine
Increase financial humanitarian support
Almost 1.5 million Ukrainians have been internally displaced since the beginning of Russia’s war on Ukraine in 2014. Should Russia decide to further invade Ukraine, millions more will be forced to flee their homeland, triggering one of the largest humanitarian crisis’ since WWII. Ukraine is Europe’s poorest country. The economic cost of equipping itself to fight-off a wholescale Russian invasion and war of occupation and conquest is forcing Ukraine to make unbearable sacrifices in social welfare spending. For this reason, Canadian humanitarian aid to Ukraine is just as vital now as it will be later in the event of full-scale war.
In support of the current and potentially larger humanitarian crisis, please consider DONATING NOW to the #HelpUkraineNow Ukrainian Humanitarian Aid Appeal, led by the Canada Ukraine Foundation. Money will be used towards food parcels, hygienic packs, medicines and pharmaceuticals.
