The war for Ukraine's independence is a war for free democratic European Ukraine. Without Ukraine, there will be no freedom, no democracy, no human rights. All Ukrainian people must unite at this time in the fight against our common fierce enemy, the Russian World. There is no time for disagreements now, and the Ukrainian LGBT+ community, as an integral part of our people, must do everything for our victory! In the Russian World, our existence — either as LGBT+ people or as Ukrainians — is simply impossible. Let us do our job in our places — in the army, in the Territorial Defense, in the workplace, as volunteers.
Together to victory!
