If you want peace, prepare for war. It’s been for the sixth consecutive year that the Russian aggression against Ukraine lasts, and our defenders who restrain the spreading of the “Russian world,” lose their lives. Obviously, each of us in this way or another wants to live in peace. Can you recollect how we tried to soothe ourselves saying that if the Russians dare to launch a full-scale assault, they would need to declare mobilization to avoid lacking the resources necessary for occupying and holding Ukraine. Still the real situation is different. We are not going either to fantasize about it or to escalate it: let us just quote Mr. Vadym Skibitskyi, a spokesperson of the Defense intelligence of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry.
Who could ever believe that the Russians would rush to occupy the entire Crimea?
According to the data of Defense Intelligence, the Russians have been re-equipping and re-grouping their troops near Ukraine’s border: to this day, the troop strength and offensive capacity of the Russians have been tripled. Hence shortly, in 2022-2023, the structure and total military capacity of their armed forces will allow them to carry out large-scale military operations in their western direction without mobilization of any extra resources. Apart from their conventional military units, the Russians pay special attention to strengthening of their army’s nuclear component: in particular, they’ve been upgrading missile means of delivery of nuclear arms with the blast radius of 12.000 kilometers which is capable of covering not only Ukraine but the entire Europe.

It would be highly naive to believe that by doing that, Russians just prepare for the upcoming reconciliation with us, unless it will be total occupation and destruction. This situation was once wittily described by the Strugatsky brothers: “We are allowed to be called ignoramuses, mystics, and superstitious fools. There is one thing we are not allowed: to underestimate danger. And if there is suddenly the odor of sulfur in our house, we are simply obliged to assume that a horned devil has appeared somewhere nearby and to take appropriate measures right up to organizing national industrial production of holy water”.
Under these circumstances, it seems to us that not only it smells of sulphur but of the devil itself, the nasty one wearing heavy military boots stomping on the Crimea and Donbas and encroaching on the rest of the Ukrainian land. That is why we urge you not to seize your efforts and not to cherish illusions about the upcoming reconciliation but to help the only real key to peace in Ukraine, our Army. Despite all the reforms and reorganization that take place in the Army, there are lots of equipment and gear that our military need to take advantage in a battle and to win this war. As proven by saddening experience, our government just cannot supply our military with most of such equipment due to certain reasons, or fails to provide it in time. And on the sixth year of the war, our volunteering efforts and charitable activities have still been in demand: we raise the funds contributed by sympathetic citizens, get them accumulated in larger sums and then buy our military the stuff they request. Most of the time, it is just essential!
At the moment, we are doing our best to equip our snipers and SpecOps fighters. We’re getting prepared for purchasing devices for our combat artillery units. Also, we need to equip the paratroopers holding the line in the forefront. In addition, we are processing the requests made by our paramedics busy saving our fighters’ lives in the frontline. The list of necessities is rather long, so everyone’s affordable assistance comes in exceptionally handy!
In response to our skeptics we can just assure that we never get any profit from our activities or assign a hryvnia to our own needs. Every amount, copeck to copeck, is spent on the needs of our military which can be seen on our transparent real-time reports. We urge you to join in and support our Armed Forces as much as you can only afford. Would you agree tat it feels much more natural to assist those who defends us than to feed the migrants who came from Bryansk or Ryazan regions onto the occupied territories. Peace is a precious thing which cannot be won for nothing.
So, dear friends, come join in as it is the matter of survival of us as a country in general. For everyone of us. Literally, for EVERYONE.
