Anyone thinking of volunteering to help Ukraine?

It looks like the gates are open at the Ukrainian border and they'll take in anyone willing to stand next to them.

Those constantly posting about feeling like what they do is meaningless or don't have an impact on the larger scheme of things, has this crossed your mind?

This has totally crossed my mind. I feel guilty saying I don’t think I would have the guts to do it but I constantly think about what I can actually do to make a difference.

US Army vet here: if I was single and didn’t have a kid I’d probably find a way to help. However, married with a kid, I feel I did my part to help out society. My responsibility is with my family now.

Agreed M1, you have already done more than most, need to take care of your family now.

Considering I’m an accountant with zero training in war, no it has never crossed my mind.

Frankly, I’ve got my own family to take care of and I don’t imagine I’ll be very good at it if I’m dead in Ukraine.

It has come to my mind, but I’d only enlist if USA joined the war. As much as I respect Ukraine and their fighters, I‘ll only join the US army.

I feel no sense of duty to Ukraine, though I do not support the Russian invasion. It’s quite simply not my business, my duty, or my war, and I would be totally opposed to US intervention. I think most people that say otherwise are caught up in emotion. War was always a game of statistics, but in a modern conventional war I’d say the odds are you’d get caught up in a drone strike before you saw any action.

Yeah, it's a tough ask. I keep going back and forth. I have my family to care for but I also think about all those that are in the center of it under similar situations and have no way out.

I have thought about it. While people in Ukraine are fighting and paying with their lives for freedom. With my freedom I sit at a chair all day and put words on a slide to make the rich richer. I rather die knowing it was for cause than just a sedentary lifestyle.

My parents have vacant house in Poland, and they will host refugees… always something

They need fighters, but also people in other areas. Like humanitarian aid to help people out of harm's way or to get to the border and settled when they cross.

Yes apparently there a lot of racism at the border and the African students are being refused entry into Poland.

They just indiscriminately handed out military-grade automatic weapons.. reports are that a lot of crime elements are using them for..crime.

Is there a difference right now between the Russian invaders and the “criminal element”? Just give me a gun too to make it fair at least.🤷🏼‍♂️

I feel bad for them but wouldn’t die for them

I’ve recently read that westerners would not get POW status if caught as they would be “unlawful combatants”. So, it’s essentially a suicide mission.

Russia is saying that to discourage against outside intervention. Russia’s move has no legal basis, so the mistreatment of foreign POWs would just be another item to add to Russia’s growing list of war crimes
