Colleen and Matt joined the briefing on the ground in Eastern Europe. Through your generosity to our Ukraine Emergency Fund, we have delivered over $30 million in aid — over 250 tons — to Ukrainians on the front lines. As Ukraine prepares for and launches its counteroffensive, we will continue to provide urgently needed nonlethal support and fund investments in soldiers’ training and development, and health and well-being.
Stopping Russian aggression is critical to defending freedom and democracy around the world. Right now, Ukraine is the most important front line against Russian aggression. Thank you for making a difference in helping Ukraine win.
