The Russian invasion of Ukraine is – sadly – still ongoing, after more than 8 months. We continue to support the Alternatives to Violence (AVP) project in Ukraine which remains active, even though conditions are difficult. The AVP group in Moscow has also resumed work (with caution!). In addition we now support AVP work in Estonia, which aims to bring together refugees from Ukraine with Estonians who are ethnically Russian.
Another new project in Estonia provides school books for refugee children. This echoes our “school books for migrant kids” project in regions of Russia. Our other work in Russia also continues “as normal”. Moving funds has become more difficult, but not impossible. We are very grateful to Friends for their ongoing support in these difficult times.
