Boston Ukrainians raise funds for Ukrainian Army with creative Anti-Putinism

 

International

On August 23, Ukrainians in Boston creatively celebrated Ukraine’s 23d anniversary of Independence and raised funds for the Ukrainian Army fighting off Russian invaders in Eastern Ukraine. 

Arts Against Aggression together with Boston’s Ukrainian Community celebrated Ukrainian Independence Day near Faneuil Hall and Boston City Hall. The centerpiece of the program was Spider Putin, a repulsive arachnoid weaving webs of lies with his legs of black balloons.

Spider Putin was part of the traditional Ukrainian Independence Day Flag-raising, Festival and Fundraiser. The previous day, the activists ran a  Online Auction Preview for Ukrainian Independence Day Festival. As a result of all these activities, funds were raised to purchase 35 individual first aid kits ($around 3500). The reason for Ukrainian soldiers needing these kits was also made clear to visitors with an artistice Putin workstation.

The organizers don’t plan to stop and are running a T-shirts for IFAKs Fundraiser! If you want to be the proud wearer of this lovely Tshirt and save a life, please visit the event to order.

Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using ťhe chance - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you). We are now $5,000 short of our financial goal and need your support to continue working. If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation!

    This group just provided more for the soldiers in Ukraine than the entire U.S. government. Thank you to them. Shame on the Obama administration.
