About Us

Ukraine Defense Support (UDS) helps Ukraine protect its democracy and sovereignty. UDS is an international network of individuals and groups all working to assist Ukraine, primarily Ukraine’s military. UDS was started in Seattle, USA but has chapters all over the world and a Logistics HUB in Kyiv, Ukraine. UDS primarily supports the International Legion for Defense of Ukraine, due to many ex-Legionaires involved in the organization, but intends to support the entire Ukrainian war effort as resources allow.

Group Goals

The urgent need is to assist Ukraine’s military forces to repel the Russian invader. The primary ways UDS does this are:

  1. Fundraising, procuring and delivering equipment to Ukraine’s military
  2. Encouraging governments outside of Ukraine to better support the country in its hour of need. More about Advocating for Ukraine.
  3. Raising awareness of the importance of this conflict.

Note that Ukraine Defense Support does not and never will purchase, transport or otherwise have anything to do with providing military weapons.
