It's heartbreaking and brutal what has been and is happening in Ukraine in the last weeks. This Russian invasion seems to be from a different Millenium; there should not be space for the Putin's of this world, who are are forcing millions of innocent people on to destruction and death.
It gives hope and good to see how the people of the world are standing with Ukraine and trying to help where it is possible.
There are many different ways how you can help as well. Friends are collecting warm clothes medical equipment and bringing it to Ukraine. Others are offering shelter and organizing places to stay for Ukrainian refugees, driving to the borders to get people into safety, or are collecting donations.
Nowadays, you also can donate cryptocurrency to nonprofit organizations or directly to the Ukrainian government. Ukraine has received around 50 million dollars in crypto donations since the war started. The Ukrainian government accepts Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether, Polkadot, Dogecoin, TRON, Solana, Monero, and NFTs.
Donations of cryptos are more transparent, faster, and more cost-effective than donating in FIAT currencies. Be careful and do your own research before you choose an organization. There are also many scammers around trying to profit from the current situation.
Here you can track the wallets of the Ukrainian government.
