Love for Ukraine

Supporting Ukraine Kids together

As the situation in Ukraine escalates, I feel with emotions too overwhelming to name. There are many children in Ukraine whose homes have been destroyed and without food and water. Gentle support is needed.

Please donate to Save the Children.

According to Google Analytics, Japanese has been visited from 217 countries and regions for 30 days. Of course, Ukrainian and Russian users are also included.

For the kind Russian people

Apparently this isn't broadcast on Russian TV, but what the Russian government is doing isn't actually a peacekeeping operation, but is more correctly described as an invasion and looting of your relative's country, Ukraine.

The only power that can change the reality in Ukraine is for the Russian people to speak out. Please touch the world media outside of Russia to see how your government is causing the tragic situation. Thank you for a peaceful world!
