With your contribution, I would like to contribute to helping Ukraine - this time not to refugees, but especially to paramedics and front-line fighters. I believe that the Ukrainian army is fighting not only for Ukraine but also for us, and it needs help. Their heroic performances are highly motivating and deserve respect and support. I and most of my friends were born / living in Czechoslovakia, Soviet-occupied Czechoslovakia, and I don't think anyone has a good idea of repeating something like this, and something needs to be done.
POST BELLUM
Ukraine is bleeding. We don’t have to stand by and watch the lawlessness and aggression our friends are facing just because they’ve decided to share our values of freedom and democracy. For a year and a half now we’ve been buying protective and medical equipment and doing all we can to ensure it reaches Ukraine as fast as possible and gets to the places where it is needed most. Thousands of vests and helmets sent by our organisation are being used by defenders on the front lines, several tonnes of medical equipment is saving lives. We have also supplied fire trucks, ambulances, power generators, drones, and optical devices. It’s not over yet: Ukrainian heroes are fighting and still need material to stand firm in the defence of their country. Please, let us persevere as well. Our own experience with the wars and totalitarian regimes of the 20th century compels us to help.

The important things do not change with the times. Whether it’s the stories from the times we ourselves faced war and totalitarianism or the ones happening right now just a few hundred kilometres away from us, they are connected by the longing for freedom, safety, and one’s home. Our own experience with war and totalitarianism in the 20th century makes us obligated to help others.


The month of February is undeniably etched into the memory of all people in Ukraine. Since none of us are indifferent to the fate of this country, we decided to organize a rally together with People in Need, Million Moments for Democracy and the European Congress of Ukrainians to commemorate the 2nd anniversary of the war. We want to say to Ukrainians: 'We are with you. This is also our struggle and a struggle for our future." Join us on Saturday, February 24, 2024 from 4 to 5 pm at Old Town Square, where, among others, President of the Czech Republic Petr Pavel and other interesting guests will speak.



In 2019, the non-profit organisation Post Bellum set up an office in Lviv with the goal of filming the witness accounts for the Paměť národa archive. Our colleagues in Ukraine recorded dozens of stories mostly from survivors of Stalinist repressions, dissidents, and political prisoners. After the outbreak of the war, they asked for our help. We could not decline. Thanks to your support, we have supplied the defenders of Ukraine with thousands of bulletproof vests and helmets, tonnes of medical equipment and optical devices as well as fully equipped ambulances and fire trucks. Dozens of human lives have verifiably been saved thanks to this. All the aid provided has been non-lethal in nature.

All materials needed have been consulted with experts from the Army of the Czech Republic. The recipients of our aid are predominantly frontline fighters, members of special forces units. The assistance is implemented through the Embassy of Ukraine in the Czech Republic. Representatives of the Czech Embassy in Kyiv then oversee the correct use and distribution of the material to those in need.
