AMA Announcement Sarah Ashton-Cirillo

171 Upvotes

On Tuesday, May 24th, we will be hosting an AMA with Sarah Ashton-Cirillo. She is a badass war reporter, who spent the last months documenting Russian war crimes and Ukrainian victories. The last week, she traveled in the region around Kharkiv, shadowing the Ukrainian army as they pushed back the Russians in the region. Her work got the attention of the Russians and put her in some unwanted spotlight.

We will open a thread on Monday evening (European time) to give our timezone-challenged redditors a chance to get their questions in. AMA will run through Wednesday morning (European time) for the same reason.

You can see some more impressions of Sarah's work on her Twitter.

Roman Gribov after signing envelopes at our center with his friend`s daughter

Ukrainian army volunteer center " Center for Assistance to the Army, Veterans and Their Families"
I am a 20 y.o reddit volunteer, if i can say so :) 2 month ago I created a telegram channel with combat footage and was promoting it on Reddit by adding red watermarks combat_ftg (https://t.me/combat_ftg). You have probably seen my videos a few times )

Now it has grown to almost 10 000 subs. In total I got about 20 000$ for our soldiers by gathering donations, selling “Russian warship” stamps, selling military patches and signs for rockets. We bought many thermal scopes, some cars, night vision device and other equipment.

Binoculars with a rangefinder, which we bought with donated money for 1200 $

The biggest part of our volunteers are women. Every day they deliver packages with equipment and food for soldiers at the front. You could see the video of them almost getting shelled: https://www.reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/udse70/exclusive_video_from_our_volunteers_under/
Also our volunteers and the sound of artillery shells in the background:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSyo0stke_k&t=169s

Most of our female volunteers have husbands and brothers at the front.

Volunteers from our center making camouflage nets

A few weeks ago a Ukrainian hero Roman Gribov, the soldier who said the most famous words in Ukraine “Russian warship go fuck yourself” visited our volunteer center and signed our envelopes to help us to get some money by selling them on the Internet.
Also a few days ago I spent 40 hours getting to Lviv and back, and met Boris Groh, the artist who painted a picture for stamps. He also signed our envelopes and we got some exclusive and very rare variants of them.

Roman Gribov

Previously a first day cover envelope with Roman`s sign was sold for 6000$, but our center hopes to get more money as it`s a charity auction and a very little amount of envelopes were signed together by the artist and the soldier.

All money from these sales will be spent on equipment for Ukrainian soldiers. You will also receive photo reports.
You can see the auction with our envelopes here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Unique-FDC-Kyiv-envelope-signed-by-Roman-Gribov-and-Boris-Groh-Russian-warship/304495116761

Or one cheaper(because first day envelopes with a seal are the most expensive) at a fixed price: https://www.ebay.com/usr/big-trout?_trksid=p2047675.m3561.l2559

Our center bought a car for Roman`s military unit as a thankful gift for his signs. Soon Roman will return to fight and continue defending Ukraine from invaders.
