We, Russians living in Canada, are outraged by the horrible war that was started on our behalf by Vladimir Putin. A tyrant that has been abusing Russia for 20+ years, that holds in fear our friends and families back home, that made some of us leave our lives behind and start over here in Canada now kills and tortures innocent people of Ukraine and silences everyone in Russia who tries to stand up against it.
We cannot just stand and watch as this unfolds. Most of us from the first day of the war have already been doing as much as we can to stop the war or at least help those who suffer because of it. This is one more way of helping Ukraine and showing the world that we do not support the regime and its war crimes; we, the Russian people in Canada, support Ukrainians, their independence, and freedom to live in a democracy.
All funds gathered in this campaign will go straight to the Canada–Ukraine Foundation (https://www.cufoundation.ca/), a non-profit organization that helps evacuate Ukrainians, sends humanitarian aid, and supports other projects developed by Canadians and directed to help Ukraine.
Peace to Ukraine, Freedom to Russia!
