especially foreign journalists and editors,
These days I receive from you lots of inquiries requesting to describe the current situation in Kyiv and overall in Ukraine, express my opinion on what is happening, and formulate my vision of at least the nearest future. Since I am simply physically unable to respond separately to each of your publications with an extended analytical essay, I have decided to prepare this brief
statement which each of you can use in accordance with your needs. The most important things I must tell you are as follows.
Internet-users that express their solidarity with Ukrainians under occupation and protesters of EuroMaidan in Kyiv and throughout Ukraine can provide remote financial assistance. Injured activists need treatment, families of those who died are also in need of support. Activists need means of personal protection, hotlines need money for mobile phones. TV channels that make online broadcasts of current events also need your help in order to make it possible for you to follow the current events in Ukraine live. The volunteer team of EuromaidanPR is also accepting donations.
