Several thousand Christmas cards have been prepared. Some of them were also signed by school children, Ukraine Today reports.

The campaign organizers say this year they managed to collect way more cards, adding that the recipients were extremely happy that they were not forgotten ahead of the holiday.

Another group of volunteers from the city of Zastavna in western Ukraine have been supporting Ukrainian soldiers for the past 2 years. And they are not going to stop. For this year's St Nicholas day, they decided to present the men on the front a stunning variety of home-made food and other goodies.

As well as the food, they collected a couple of bags of warm clothes.

It will be their 23rd trip to the war zone. Though the war is tiring both for soldiers and volunteers, the latter promised to help the Ukrainian troops fighting in Donbas until the victorious end.
