OTHER FORMS OF SUPPORT
1/ If you have friends or acquaintances from Ukraine, ask directly – can you help, what help they need, because each situation may be individual.
2/ Do not be fooled by Russian propaganda, do not be a victim of disinformation – turn on critical thinking, verify information in various sources.
3/ Show support by, for example, posting statements of solidarity with Ukraine, the Ukrainian flag on social media. The symbols are important.
4/ If you want to provide financial support – choose specific people you know and / or recognized non-governmental organizations. Remember that there may be various types of scammers trying to take advantage of someone else’s tragedy.
5/ Don’t panic! That’s what the aggressor wants – instill fear and panic around the world.
