These are some sites that I have found bringing aid directly to the Ukraine military and peoples. I cannot personally attest to them, use your judgement. I have no affiliation with them in any way.
There are many other general humanitarian sites, and they are excellent, but a number of the sites listed here address the immediate defense needs of the Ukraine people. Some link-forwarding is used from Rebrandly to handle Google Translate links.
Please pray and meditate for peace, and for the safety of the Ukrainian people and the entire world as a result of this heartless aggression. Thank you, and please encourage others to support a democratic country under siege in any way they can. Freedom isn't free and we all share this one little planet.
