With a sense of horror, anger and sadness I watch reports of Ukrainians fighting for their homeland, refugees seeking safety and slowly the best of humanity finding the resolve to beat back the Russian invaders.
This is history repeating itself, when madmen dictators look for opportunities to conquer others because they can. Recall the beginning of WWII, when Europe gave way to Hitler's expansionism, appeasement was rampant until Germany steamrolled over all of Europe.
Now we are in 2022 and the lesson is learned once more. With support from us all, Ukraine will survive and rebuild and Europe will be more vigilant for another generation or two.
I am thankful COBI has taken a stand for what is right and I draw your attention to two small ways to support Ukraine and the humanitarian needs of millions of refugees.

Are you going to be selling the ghost Kyiv or do we have to order from cobi itself ( their freight charges are high )
