UkrainianConflict Megathread

We'll renew the Megathreads regularly. (For reference: Links to older editions of the Megathread are at the bottom of this post)


Join our Discord

Visit our dashboard: UkrainianConflict.live


The mod team has decided that as the situation unfolds, there's a need to create a space for people to discuss the recent developments instead of making individual posts. Please use this thread for discussing such developments, non-contributing discussion and chatter, more off-topic questions, and links.

We realize that tensions are high right now, but we ask that you keep discussion civil and any violations of our rules or sitewide rules (such as calls for violence, name-calling, hatred of any kind, etc) will not be tolerated and may result in a ban from the sub.

Below are some links, please put suggestions, corrections etc. related to the links, but also the Megathread in general, in a reply to the sticky comment.


Help for Ukrainian Citizens:
Donations:

Please keep donations to trusted charities. If you are not sure, check it twice. There are many scammers and also organizations which primarily want to further their own goals, not the wellbeing of the victims of the conflict. Please don't react to calls for donations or other financial support, which you got as unsolicited chat or private messages, but report them as spam/scam to reddit.

“Oh my god, just fucking give Ukraine the Patriot already. What sort of a divine sign from high above are you even waiting for after 9 months of Russia’s war? In what order should planets and stars parade so that a political decision could be made? How many more…” Illia Ponomarenko 🇺🇦 on Twitter

All the weapons in the world mean nothing if a country does not possess soldiers brave enough and tough enough to endure the hell of war. This is the price Ukraine's soldiers are willing to pay for their freedom. They fight to defend what they love, and they will win.
