Independent and sovereign Ukraine-Суверенна та незалежна Україна

We express our opposition against actions taken by the Russian Federation towards independent and sovereign Ukraine. We encourage all people who would like to support the humanitarian action to participate in public donations and to support activities undertaken by the IBB PAS community.
