Over a weak has been passed but Russia’s President Putin is not stopping. He ordered his troops to invade Ukraine and declared an unprovoked war that shook the whole world.
Unfortunately, many people lost their loved ones, had to leave their homes, their pets, or stay in cities with the constant fear of being hit by missiles and not being able to sleep because of the explosions or sirens going off.
Brave Ukrainian soldiers are holding the front and are motivated to protect their homes. While they are involved in military activities, civilians also have their own ways to weaken the Russian army and demoralize them. The sunflower lady has already become a legend and people trying to stop tanks with their bare hands became symbols of the strong Ukranians’ spirit and determination to win.
We did detailed research to know what people are feeling and showing smaller or bigger acts of resistance to help Ukraine defeat their and, at the same time, our enemy

When war comes, the first ones to stand up to fight are the soldiers. With what we saw happen in Ukraine, it is recommended that civilians evacuate the cities that are under attack. Actually, it is estimated that there will be about 5 million Ukrainian refugees trying to escape to neighboring countries or even further, especially if they have family or friends there.
The UN refugee agency reports that by Wednesday morning New York time, more than 874k had people fled Ukraine and the number is constantly growing.
“We wouldn’t know how we would react if our country was attacked, but what is clear is that those Ukrainians are very brave and know that even small acts can make big changes. We already have so many stories that have secured a place in history books, like the already mentioned sunflower lady.
Not only are Ukrainians showing resistance, but the whole world has also learned that Putin doesn’t have a heart and that nobody in power is courageous enough to make him change his mind about the war in Ukraine. But Russian people are brave enough to go to the streets to protest as they didn’t want any of this to happen despite the fact that they almost certainly will be arrested and who knows when they will be released if that will happen altogether.”
“Other nations show support by going into the streets as well, surrounding the Russian embassy or vandalizing it, CEOs are breaking off business relationships with companies that profit Russia’s economy, and even social media is getting involved in all of this.
Someone came up with the idea to write Google Reviews for Russian businesses telling how rotten the regime is and how unnecessary the war is. Others are setting their Tinder location to big cities in Russia and when they get a match, they send pictures from Ukraine showing how Putin’s regime is making another country suffer.”
“Every single act with the intention to help Ukraine has the potential to have a snowball effect and actually impact someone’s life and pave the way to peace. It doesn’t matter if it is donating money, providing humanitarian support, spreading awareness about what is happening or reporting misinformation.”
