Many FICPI members have been in touch to ask how they can help in Ukraine.

FICPI member, Yuriy Karlash, who lives and works in Kyiv has provided the following information:

Our National Bank opened accounts to accumulate donations in various currencies.

There is an official web site with information how foreigners can help Ukraine. They provide a link to the web-site that aggregates information about aid to Ukraine. It has a section related to donations, including Humanitarian help.

On 22 March 2022, the government of Ukraine launched a new web-site for provision of aid https://help.gov.ua/en.

I hope this the fullest list of the organisations who really help.

Yuriy also writes that the main need of IP professionals and everyone in Ukraine now is to take their family members to a safe place outside Ukraine. Kids and women are allowed to leave Ukraine, but men who are 18-60 years old are not, with certain exemptions. Therefore, the main problem of those who leave is to find accommodation and to find IP related work (if we talk about IP women). If any members are able to assist, please contact the FICPI Secretariat. 

Law firm Doubinsky & Osharova, based in Ukraine, have provided the following information:
