As per this article, JustGiving cancelled my recent Donbass fundraiser.
I understand it’s against Paypal regulations to fundraise for a specific cause, and be sure the ‘pro-Ukraine’ activists will complain about even this. So to be clear – this is not fundraising for a cause. I’ll give my Paypal account details – if you send a donation to that, and mark what it’s for, be sure it will get to the intended (within the scope of my powers / requests within reason).

The aim of my humanitarian aid is to take aid to those most in need, and those in places which sometimes get forgotten about – Gorlovka, Pervomaisk, Oktoberskiy region of Donetsk. The money given so far has done everything from give out food and vital products in the hardest hit areas of Donbass, pay for an ambulance to be repaired in Donetsk, pay for a proper funeral for a 16-year-old victim of Ukrainian shelling.
I film as much as possible of distribution, so it’s all accountable. There are also times when an old woman or so will approach me on the street, in a desperate situation, and I’ve given out funds here in extreme situations for food, medicines.
In short, your aid gets to those most in need, and most often you’ll see video of that.
Now, to note, this is my only Paypal address. I’m an independent journalist, not contracted to any company. Donations made to this address to support my work, allow me to buy equipment, cover costs, are very important. However, they do not in any way overlap with donations given for humanitarian aid. Donations for humanitarian aid are always used for exactly that.
And always thank you for your support, in any capacity. On behalf of those in Donbass who have benefited, and whom I hope will further benefit from your support, an enormous thank you.
