Thanks. Libereco site works well. Hope to give more as able. In the meantime, keeping Ukraine front of mind and in prayers. Hope yours and MS's friends are OK.

Thank you Professor Snyder for your support and help. I wish you would do a livestream talking about the ongoing invasion. Just now Zelensky said he’s willing to discuss “Ukraine’s neutral stays with Russia.” Neutral on what exactly? Do you believe Zelensky is the right president for the moment? Why aren’t anti-tank defenses being used?? And did you expect anything different from NATO, especially any thoughts on Biden giving Putin a month, saying we’ll see how the sanctions work in the coming month as Putin invaded? I donated to two places on your list, including the children, yesterday. Thank you so much ❤️🙏🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦

Re International Court of Justice and Lisandra Novo (USA/Harvard) who is apparently there—I don‘t know how to reach her and would like to ask her what support if any she can give to the request from the President of Ukraine for immediate action on the mis-use of the charge of genocide by President Putin. ( As a start.)

Leaping subjects, the 15 nuclear reactors in Ukraine are reportedly now at risk and of great danger to people in Ukraine and to others, no? Does this specific threat warrant immediate intervention and help from dedicated organizations (whatever I mean by that, sorry) outside Ukraine?

Thank you for posting groups that are easier to donate to. We gave to Caritas. It was simple!

Prof Snyder, thank you so much for this & the previous post. I've put them both up on FB & they've already been shared a number of times.

While this is hardly your field - since you were kind enough to put this information together, please also let us know if you hear of legitimate animal welfare organizations we can also support. I expect people are abandoning their pets as they flee, or have trouble taking animals other than dogs into bomb shelters. Not to mention do we know what happens to livestock? I've been looking online & not found any solid information.

Thank you.

I don't if this is permissible here, but since I asked the question, I'll provide one answer I found: IFAW is working in Ukraine, & has a good rating from Charity Navigator.

Thank you. https://www.ifaw.org/action/ukraine-emergency-aid-update

Yes, and sharing, of course. A few of the links you shared yesterday are also credit-card friendly, but it is great to have these new options.

Some people who aren't here may be following you on Facebook...another way to make this important request.

Which currency is it best to send? US dollars or Ukraine Hryvnia?

Prof. Snyder, I went to the Army SOS Facebook Group, and Oleksii Savchenko posted that they are having trouble with Western Union and requested that foreigners use PayPal instead. I copied and pasted the post below.

“Dear Friends from abroad who have transferred donations via Western Union. Unfortunately, for yet unknown reasons, we are unable to withdraw WU donations.

For now, please use MoneyGram([www.moneygram.com/](http://www.moneygram.com/?fbclid=IwAR0_PDRMKm0ffD5R_czo06T-NAqrlZgU1Wn_UIdDaPAh-27ruHTsMxt1kMw)): for Oleksii Savchenko, Kyiv, Ukraine, armia.sos@gmail.com.

Prof Snyder - I'm looking for an Australian-based one that will allows a tax deductible donation (I can effectively give almost 2x as much if it is). Does this one look ok to you (https://www.ukrainecrisisappeal.org/ , it looks like a partnership with Rotary Club of Australia) or can you please add a link. Thanks!
