We and the world will take from Russia much more than Russian missiles will take from Ukraine!

Ukrainians!

The 54th day of our defense against the Russian invasion is coming to an end. The Russian army is not slowing down the use of missiles against Ukraine. Although it should have realized that it will be extremely difficult for it to restore the missile arsenal given even already imposed sanctions. Without imports, they can't even do that. And when all the loopholes used to circumvent sanctions are closed, and when even tougher sanctions are imposed, restoring Russia's missile capabilities will be unrealistic. That is, Russian missile strikes lead to only one thing - missile self-demilitarization of the Russian Federation.

Activities done by Green Cross Ukraine in terms of financial humanitarian aid from Green Cross Switzerland

Since February 24, 2022, the life of every Ukrainian has changed forever. There is a real humanitarian catastrophe in most cities and villages. There is no well-established supply of raw materials, medicines and food. Many people are in life-threatening areas and need urgent evacuation. According to WHO, the current estimated number of victims is 18 million people, of which 6.7 million are internally displaced persons as a result of the Russian military aggression against Ukraine. The invasion caused a migration crisis. According to the UN, 3 million refugees fled Ukraine, including 1.4 million children.

Green Cross Switzerland (GCCH) found an opportunity to help, showed solidarity and financially supported the needy category of people in Ukraine. Thanks to a stable partnership, in 2022 Green Cross Ukraine (GCU) has been actively providing humanitarian assistance to the population suffering as a result of the invasion of Russian troops on the territory of all Ukraine. Timely consultations and negotiations had an impact on further directions in new areas for the implementation of humanitarian work in Ukraine. Regions and problematic issues were identified, which were urgently and promptly resolved thanks to coordination and agreements that had a positive impact on assistance to families and children in certain regions of Ukraine (Zhytomyr, Chernihiv regions, the city of Slavutych, the city of Kyiv and the Kyiv region).

Stand with Ukraine

Dear friends,

It so happened that our peaceful, free and kind Ukraine, which never threatened anyone and never attacked anyone, was bombarded by the enemy who covered himself with completely senseless motives and intentions.

It is very difficult and anxious for all of us to believe what happened.

But now this is our reality. In Ukraine, there is a real confrontation between good, democratic values ​​and freedom against the aggressor.

The Honor and Will to freedom of Ukrainians is so great that neither our friends nor our enemies could adequately assess it. For the former, it came as a pleasant surprise, and for the latter, it was the cause of their own imminent catastrophe.

GCU APPEAL

Dear friends,

Dear colleagues and partners,

“We are not afraid of Russia, we are not afraid to talk about everything with Russia, we are not afraid to talk about security guarantees, we are not afraid to talk about a neutral status. But what kind of guarantees will we have? And most importantly: which specific countries will give them to us?”

It is quotation of President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The Ukrainian people need guarantees and accurate information about the countries that will be ready to provide them for the confidence and security of the lives of families and all of our people.

When will the invasion of Russian invaders on my land stop?

This is now the main issue that worries my family and millions of my native people.

We are defending our freedom and land, and more than ever we need effective international assistance and support from you.

It is very difficult for all of us to cope with the invaders, but we are trying to be strong, and we will stand in this struggle for independence and freedom.

With your help and support, it will be easier for us to survive, in this regard, we ask you and inform about the needs of people who are now facing difficult and inhuman conditions and situations.

In cities where hostilities are taking place, people need bread, water, food for children, milk for children and medicines.

We need to help with the food supply.
