Daniel (Daniil) M. Ozernyi of Northwestern University writes:
I am a Ukrainian. I am sure you are aware of the situation which befell my country over the last few days.
The invading troops have shown cruelty beyond measure and expression, to which the Taliban’s calls for exercising restraint attests. My family is still in Ukraine, under the air strikes, and my friends and former colleagues are on the streets facing Russian militia while I myself am on the brink of flying over to Poland to get to Kyiv and be with my people in these times.
I am reaching out to you hoping that you perhaps could share with the Daily Nous community some ways to help the Ukrainian and wider affected community. I hope most sincerely for your compassion and empathy!
