By now, everyone is aware of the war raging in Ukraine. Some people might be lost on what they know, what they hear, and where they stand, but there are many who just want to help. The media has been supplying a vast amount of information about what is happening in Ukraine, but in today’s day and age, one can never be sure of what is real and what is false. From over here in the US, we can do our part to stay informed and research ways in which we can help Ukraine.
I was lucky enough to view Pease’s Public Library Zoom event, “What is Happening in Ukraine?” with speaker Rebecca McGory. McGory holds an M.S. in Russian Politics and Society from King’s College in London, an M.A. in Conflict Analysis and Resolution from George Mason University, and an M.S. in Con- flict Resolution and Mediterra- nean Security. She worked for several years for a non-profit or-

During the informative event, McGory gave a brief history of how Ukraine and Russia are re- lated to each other, information on the fallout and the war, the current state of Ukraine and Rus- sia, Ukrainian refugees, and the consequences that affect Ukraine, Russia, Europe, and the USA.
During the informational ses- sion, McGory supplied a strong resource for those who are hop-
ing to help Ukraine. The website, about-us/, enlightens curious in- dividuals about Razom’s mission and what they do. Razom’s pri- mary goal is to “unlock the po- tential of Ukraine,” but since the events of Ukraine and Russia un- folded, they have set up resources and blogs for people to help aid the brave country. On their FAQ Page, they answer many vital questions on how people can help and volunteer, and they have a link where people who are able can donate. Razom’s blog also has a lot of excellent information about advocating for Ukraine, their emergency response sta-
