Support Ukraine! List of credible fundraisers and campaigns

27.02.2022 godz. 14:55

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is inevitably associated with a huge influx of false information that is intended to distort our point of view on this conflict. War, however, is not only about actions on the battle front, but most of all it is the suffering of huge numbers of innocent people. If you want to help Ukrainian citizens, it should be borne in mind that the disinformation agents may want to use our sympathy against us and create false fundraisers or aid campaigns.

Here is a list of reliable and verified fundraisers. Below those, you’ll find examples of Ukraine aid-related scams that you should not get involved in under any circumstances.

Watch out for unverified fundraisers and scams!

The attack on Ukraine is also used by online scammers who, under the guise of wanting to help, extort data or money and capitalize off of the turmoil in the country.

Threat Labs warns against websites urging to support Ukraine through… tokens.

Threat Labs Twitter channel regularly reports on scams related to fundraising in Ukraine. We encourage you to follow.

Niebezpiecznik.pl also warns against unverified fundraisers. The website shared an example of an e-mail received by one of the readers on its Facebook page. The author of the message pretends to be a murdered Ukrainian man’s wife, asking for a transfer in the form of Bitcoins.

On February 28, the organization Come Back alive (one of the credible initiatives on our list) informed that a fake fundraiser was founded, pretending to be its website savelife.in.ua (fake address: savelife.net.ua). Real link to help.
