Rock musicians in Ukraine and Europe have been spreading the news of the atrocities occurring in Ukraine and have been raising funds to support the country.
Two popular Ukrainian Rockabilly bands – The Wise Guyz (Kharkiv) and Ruki’v’Bryuki (Kyiv) – have been posting on their Facebook group about their current realities in Ukraine.
A Ukrainian expat in Poland, Daria Chuprina, who is also part of the rockabilly scene, set up her own charity and soon became connected with The Wise Guyz and Ruki'v'Bryuki, and then they all combined their efforts.
As a result, people outside Ukraine, have been able to send supplies into the country, where they are then distributed by the rockabilly band members. The supplies include food and medicine, as well as protective equipment such as boots and helmets.
