The war is closer than you think - at a cycling distance from your home!
OUR MISSION To draw attention to the mistake that cost the lives of hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers. Ambulances handed over to military paramedics to evacuate the wounded from the battlefield are considered military aid. European charitable organisations, guided by their policies and/or their beliefs, avoid donations for the purchase of such vehicles. In reality, a wounded soldier is just a wounded person, helping to save his life is the first duty of any philanthropist.
OUR GOAL To obtain a policy statement on this issue from the British government to transfer ambulances from the list of military aid to the list of humanitarian aid. To buy 15 ambulances for Ukraine, torn by the war.
OUR PLAN To ride a bicycle for 2500 km through 15 European cities to raise funds to save lives and to remind everyone that the war is still going on!
WHEN DID IT TAKE PLACE On July 19, members of the best Ukrainian cycling clubs set off from the front line to the Ukrainian-Polish border with the flag of the 132nd Battalion of the Airborne Assault Troops. On July 24, we met them at the border and set off on a trip across Europe. On August 7, we finished in London.
