The Russian invasion in February 2022 came as a great surprise to many of us and also hit us hard. We’re a German-speaking group of expats and regular guests of Ukraine’s summer capital. Since the first days of the war, some of our Stammtisch members have therefore been providing aid with great personal commitment, both in the humanitarian field and for the defense of Ukraine.
For the national defense we have so far organized over ten aid deliveries. We make sure that the supplies are shipped directly to the front line and directly benefit the soldiers. To achieve this, we work with Ukrainian war veterans and volunteers from the Territorial Defense.
From our contacts we are told what is needed most urgently. We then collect donations and add our own funds to source these goods in Germany. We take care to buy and deliver in large quantities and at favorable conditions.
The late autumn and winter with all the mud, wetness, cold and frost, is one of the hardest seasons for the soldiers. Even if winter equipment is supplied from international army stocks, the demand is still huge.
Right now we are primarily delivering:
- Thermal underwear
- Waterproof rain jackets
- Fleece underjackets
- Tactical gloves
- Winter sleeping bags
- Esbit / gas cartridges
- Power banks
In order to be able to continue to support the soldiers at the front, we depend on donations. We guarantee that every single cent donated will reach the front line. If you would like to support us as well, please donate to our campaign set up for this specific purpose:
We would like to thank all donors already right now! For further questions please contact us via our contact form.
