Livepage stands with Ukraine against the Russian invasion
We are Ukrainians and proud of that. On February 24th, Russian Federation launched a large-scale invasion of Ukraine, a sovereign and independent country, and continues to attack peaceful cities and Ukrainians on the whole territory.
There are a few statements we want to make in this regard:
Russia is an aggressor. We condemn this unprecedented act of war and accumulate all our powers to help the Ukrainian army defend our country. We donate to the Ukrainian army, volunteer, and use our professional tools to share the truth with the world.
We ensure the safety of our team. This is our priority. For now, all our teammates and their families are relatively safe.
We at Livepage continue to provide our services. We do our best in terms of all our commitments to our clients. Still, we redistribute our resources to support our country in the information war.
🌻 About Livepage foundation work
The war in our country shocked every Ukrainian and affected businesses of all sizes. Currently, many people and enterprises, including our company, have refused to cooperate with russian companies and those who support russian crimes in Ukraine. Our goal is to help Ukraine win this war as soon as possible.
As our company is located in Dnipro and borders the regions where active war fighting is taking place, we receive a lot of requests for assistance from the military. We decided to systematize volunteer activities. The volunteer team is led by our PM Team Lead Valeriia Vyshnevska. Also, our Ihor Rozumniuk from the HR department is actively engaged in looking for, buying, and delivering various items.
Examples of needs we cover:
- cars for the front lines;
- thermal imagers;
- bulletproof vests and things for our friends on the front lines;
- systematic equipping of the Dnipro battalion with walkie-talkies;
- mini-SPS (solar power station) charging stations;
- vests for our sailors.
We have many requests in the queue and new ones are being added constantly. Some requests require large sums to be raised, such as for drones, some of which may cost around 250,000 UAH (~$7,000). Yes, the price is very high, but these models will be reliable assistants, equipped with powerful cameras and thermal imagers. Or another example is cars that may cost thousands of dollars, depending on the model. Cars are essential for delivering the military to the place and delivering food, medicine, and necessary things to the front line.
There are many requests, but to satisfy them all we need a lot of donations. We want to cover the needs of all defenders who come to us. And we can do it because we already have a system for finding the necessary things and equipment; we deliver everything quickly and make photo reports. The question that remains is raising money.
💳 How to donate
We are asking our friends, clients, and partners to join in raising funds for the needs of the military. Together we can bring victory closer!

✔️ Our Principles
- Cooperation with familiar people and hubs;
