"Foreign envoys" is Ukrainian envoys to other countries in this case. They didn't kick anyone out of Ukraine, they're rotating some of their ambassadorial staff.

Ukraine aid links

A month and a half into the war (day 44), many of us felt helpless and listless at not being able to do more to help, so here is a list of things that we can do.

There are plenty of charities that could use your help, but even if you don't have spare cash lying about, there are still things you can do so keep reading


You can donate directly to Ukraine if you want to help them make more videos of tanks blowing up. (See 'military aid' below)

There are lots of humanitarian groups working to feed the displaced people and even their pets.  (See 'humanitarian aid')

And even if you're not in a position to give cash, you might be able to find a group that needs some volunteer help or attend a protest.  If you don't have a group in your area specifically helping Ukraine, you can likely still find other worthwhile causes.  And there are groups that have tasks that can be done online or over the phone without even leaving your home. (See 'other notes'). Even just calling politicians to remind them that we need to support Ukrainians.

You can call out dumbasses online who are spreading russian propaganda and otherwise spewing toxic crap.  And by ignoring or blocking the assholes on here who try that shiat.

And you can even support capitalism, and buy stuff made in Ukraine or are fundraisers for the war effort.  (See 'buying stuff')

This is in no way a comprehensive list.  This is just groups that Farkers have mentioned in past threads.  If you want a more comprehensive list, see https://supportukrainenow.org . They also have links to specific groups by country that you're coming from for protests, taking in refugees, etc.  You might also find interesting charities at https://www.reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/tgc00n/want_to_support_ukraine_heres_a_list_of_charities/

If you're currently employed by a large-ish company, they may have a donation matching program.  You can check https://doublethedonation.com/but it's also worth contacting your HR to ask even if they're not listed there.

...

Other notes & ways to help:

You should also check to see if your employer has a donation matching program.  Some may be listed at https://doublethedonation.com/

Some donations may be eligible to get you nudie pics:  https://teronlyfans.com/english/

If you want to fund reporting of the war:  https://www.gofundme.com/f/kyivindependent-launch;  https://www.patreon.com/kyivindependent

If you can't donate money, but have free time and the health to do it, consider volunteering your time to groups to help them free up money to spend in the Ukraine.

You can search Charity Navigator ( https://www.charitynavigator.org ) or GuideStar (https://www.guidestar.org/NonprofitDirectory.aspx) for terms like Ukraine, and look find a group near you that needs extra hands.  If you can't find a Ukraine specific one, pick another one with a mission that you support.

If you want to donate drones, medical supplies and such:  https://www.mriyaaid.org/aid

If you want to have a supper club or bake sale fundraiser and would like recipes:  https://www.cookforukraine.org

There are even ways to contribute online, for the home bound people:

Ukrainian Global University needs volunteers to talk educational institutions into helping displaced students:  https://uglobal.university/

Learn about Ukrainian History (and raise funds):  https://youtube.com/watch?v=tl070rPB58M

If you're a US citizen, call your congress critters and let them know how you feel:  (202) 224-3121.  Or if you want to sponsor refugees:  https://ukraine.welcome.us.  But you may want to try to find an NGO, as if you directly sponsor them you're financially responsible for two years.  (So tell your representatives to give them refugee status)


If you would like to avoid doing business with companies still operating in russia, seehttps://www.dontfundwar.com

If you use streaming music services, search for Ukrainian artist playlists, so you'll give them a fraction of a penny and maybe find some new artists to support more directly.

If you watch cam sites, consider supporting Ukrainians (although some may currently be displaced, others may tag Ukraine to show support because they're from neighboring countries, and some of the most in need of support may not currently have internet access; I don't have any sort of definitive list)

There are also efforts to DDoS Russian websites, but I'm not linking to them to avoid risking the mods removing this whole list.

Also see the official Ukrainian website on ways to support their effort:  https://war.ukraine.ua/support-ukraine/

Thanks for the mention. It's nice to be appreciated. Off the top of my head and forgetting some also. JUC, Medic Zero, and Sword and Sheild have also put in a lot of effort. I've been pretty lax of late. I was depressed over turning 60, binging heavily, which was fine, but then suffering real bad neurological stress from involuntary cold turkey. I won't dwell but I've been a wreck. Still easing myself out of this last one.

Ukraine recalled and fired a bunch of their ambassadors from western European countries yesterday, no reason given.  If I had to guess though, there is a lot of money and aid coming in from private donations, to go help Ukraine, and I suspect that these ambassadors were diverting some of that for their own personal bank accounts, and Zelenksy caught wind of it.  The guy hates corruption almost as much as he hates Orcs.

The DW video that was posted above mentioned it.  They said the German ambassador was recalled, that Ukraine was saying it was just normal rotations and not a big deal, but the newscasters speculated that it might be related to tge ambassador's criticism of the German government regarding aid.

Thanks, that makes sense.  Some of the German leadership has been real dicks about helping Ukraine, though I would point out the majority of German people seem to be for it.  We're not immune to that kind of nonsense in the US, looking at you Rand Paul.  That said, an ambassador can't go around talking smack about political figures in his country, even if Rand Paul is a giant pile of aborted pig fetuses that has been left out to rot in the sun all summer, without compromising his ability to do his job.

DrD'isInfotainment: DrD'isInfotainment: JaytheFarkingCanadian: To Father Jack, Harlee, Fasahd, VHTS, and Traci, to name but a few: Thank you all, for the work you folks put into these threads. It's all appreciated, and,more importantly, helping to keep the war fresh in our minds every day. I apologise to the other folks who work just as hard here who I can't name off of the top of my head.

Let's not forget dkulprit, who knows a schitton about munitions and tactical uses of artillery

In the #Arkhangelsk Region (russia), a bus carrying conscripts was involved in an accident when it collided on the road with a gas train and a truck.
The driver of the truck died on the spot, while the others sustained injuries of varying severity.

Bus still upright, gas truck not in flames. Its a GAS TRUCK, that should have been a minimum. That's just poor implementation.

Juc: The wording in this makes it seem like the plot for a comedy

This might be good for increased stability for the Middle East.  A lot of Middle Eastern countries have huge stockpiles of old Soviet weapons that are probably just sitting in warehouses, waiting to get stolen by Jihadist, that they otherwise don't need since they upgraded to newer stuff in the past 30 years.
