Слава Україні! 🇺🇦

This is my collection of resources and links relating to the Ukraine War 2022.
Слава Україні! 🇺🇦
I created a website for refugees of the Ukraine War.

It has information pertaining to visas, accommodation, transportation, and humanitarian aid.

Please share if you know someone who would benefit from this info 🙏

Below is a collection of resources, which help my understanding of the war:

Must Read/Watch

  • Russia Analysis (Martti J. Kari, Finnish Intelligence Colonel) [1-hour long lecture with subtitles 🎥] - Colonel Kari discusses Russia’s “Strategic Culture”. It is a deep dive into Russian history since the Byzantine Empire to understand Russia’s political decision-making today. It helps to step out of your own bubble and take a look at the other side of the narrative.
  • In-Depth Analyses About Russia (Kamil Galeev, Galina Starovoitova Fellow at The Wilson Center, DC) [Collection of Twitter threads 🧵] - Kamil writes long-form analyses about all aspects of Russia (history; logistics; demographics; political and spiritual orientation; the role of oligarchs/military/state police/Orthodox Church/etc.).
  • "Warum es um unserer Freiheit geht" [40-minut long podcast interview 🎧] - start at 1:14:10 and listen to the interview with Prof. Timothy Snyder. Also, I'd recommend reading his books - in particular The Road to Unfreedom.


  • Christo Grozev - Investigative journalist for Bellingcat. Focus on researching and documenting war crimes during the Ukraine War.
  • Illia Ponomarenko - War and defense reporter for Kyiv Independent. Covering the war zone.


  • Institute for the Study of War - Leading Think Tank giving daily assessments of the war.
  • Michael Kofman - Leading researcher for Russian Military strategy and tactics.
  • Rob Lee - American defense analyst. Mainly focused on analyzing publicly available information (OSINT) about the war.
  • Nathan Ruser - Open-source intelligence analyst covering the Indo-Pacific region but doing more Ukraine work recently.
  • Trent Telenko - Military logistics expert writing about tires, supply lines, and bridges during the Ukraine War. You wouldn't believe how interesting this is.


  • Alexander Stubb - Former PM of Finland. Good perspective on Scandinavian policy moves.
  • Sergej Sumlenny - Former Director at the Boell Stiftung in Kyiv. Born in Russia, now a German citizen. Very vocal pressure on the German government in regards to security policy, its role in EU's sanction responses, and Vergangenheitsbewaeltigung.


  • Pod Save the World - Former members of President Obama's Security Council discussing geopolitics. Currently, a heavy focus on the war in Ukraine.
  • Intelligence Matters - Former acting director of the CIA discussing moves in the intelligence community in the context of the Ukraine War.
  • Sicherheitshalber - German podcast discussing the Ukraine War in the context of German/EU security policy.

My Writing

If you want to help people affected by the Ukraine War, you can find vetted resources here.

But I don't know where to start?
💶 Have a couple of euros extra? Donate.
🏠 Have accommodation that you don't use? Provide accommodation for refugees.
🧰 Have a helpful skill? Help with that skill.

This is not limited to the Ukraine situation. There are enough people struggling with war, displacement, etc.

Help them if you can.
