Upon serving their term, hundreds of Ukrainian veterans come home to their cities and towns with passionate hearts and deep desire to help Ukraine in any way they can. Adaptation to the “peaceful life” after surviving months of daily life-or-death risk can be and quite often is hard on both psychological and social well-being of our brave women and men soldiers and officers. They are striving to continue serving Ukraine but need to find new paths. Professional education is a definite solution.

The project is named after brave Bohdan Radchenko – a student of KMA of the first draw, who volunteered to serve in the East and was killed in 2016.

Your support and your donations are crucial to the Vostok Donetsk program! One Master’s program tuition at KMA costs around $1200. Every dollar will help provide more veterans with necessary professional tools to achieve their goals and find their purpose in the non-military life.
