There were many who wanted to help.


“I have talked to the embassy of Ukraine and the World Trade Organisation and the embassy has replied to me in five minutes that the information you have is correct! So all the addresses have been verified! Let’s do it! Don’t miss this chance!" tweeted Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum.



Russian leader Vladimir Putin unleashed a full-scale invasion on Thursday that has killed dozens of people, forced more than 50,000 to flee Ukraine in just 48 hours and sparked fears of a new Cold War in Europe.

India is ‘deeply disturbed’ by recent turn of developments in Ukraine, said India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations. Urging that all efforts be made for the immediate cessation of violence and hostilities, he said no solution could ever be arrived at the cost of human lives.
