Since the declaration of war by president Putin on February 24, the question
is omnipresent: "How can we show solidarity, how can we help?"
A group of young people currently at university in Melbourne, Australia, came up with a smart and encouraging idea. They're of Ukrainian descent, and they believe the time to start preparing for a time after Vladimir Putin's rule is now.
"The invasion of Ukraine is the beginning of the end of Vladimir Putin's
time in power. Let's make sure we're ready then.
Approach Ukrainian individuals and communities in your region,
find common ground and establish a dialogue, many dialogues even.
Connect as humans, parents, teachers, builders, scientists, doctors,
entrepreneurs, craftsmen, ... as experts in all kinds of fields.
When we rebuild our nation, we shall need all the help we can get."
Men and women from Ukrainian communities in all parts of the world have taken up the idea. Their numbers are astounding: The Ukrainian World Congress represents the interests of 20 million Ukrainians. Support also comes from the Russian and Belarusian diaspora.
The Post-Putin-Project does this:
1 - It coordinates efforts
2 - It gives leverage to the Ukrainian diaspora
3 - It shows Ukrainians how much hands-on solidarity they can expect and
that they are not alone - not now and not when better times come
