Inside the Ukrainian IT businesses during Russian invasion
We want to tell you more about our life during wartime, the people behind our platform, and our coworkers in the group of companies we belong to.
Serpstat team in military mode
We also support our colleagues in danger now, situated in different parts of Ukraine. They truly know the facts about the situation there. Every new meeting for us is a chance to get more info about regions in which our parents, friends and relatives are located.
Over the past three weeks, a lot of our customers offered to help us. We've received an incredible number of support messages, comments, and mentions. Both your kind words and donations mean a lot to us. Our team is very grateful for the support of our users.
The Russian army is shelling cities and villages, millions of people are losing their homes and lives right now. Residential buildings, hospitals, kindergartens and schools fall under the shelling of missiles by the army of your country. Civilians are killed every hour.
In this regard, Serpstat cannot continue to help the development of Russian businesses, since war crimes against a sovereign state are funded by taxes from business activities.
The account will be unlocked, or the money will be returned after Russia stops its war crimes, withdraws all troops and overthrows its crazed president.
Service development and release of updates we implemented
For example, in the last few weeks, we have released the following updates to the tool:
The way our team is struggling
As you can see in the video reports from independent media, Russian soldiers bomb the peaceful towns and villages in Ukraine and kill older people, women, children, and even newborns indiscriminately.
So far, our defenders have pushed all the occupiers away in the Kharkiv direction.
We are currently strengthening our positions in case the orcs [russian soldiers] break into the city, but we will do our best to prevent this from happening. Also, we catch saboteurs, but in this case, we are both bait and hook :)
I'm proud of our people very much because we were able to unite against the enemy, to stand for each other, everyone helps each other, we have become a united nation.
Other countries' support is essential. Now, everyone has finally seen what has been happening in Ukraine for the last 8 years.
How much was it needed to infuriate the world that people from other affected countries come to us to avenge the fact that they killed their people on their land with complete impunity? They have to do so and it does not happen again in other states.
Over the week, UVJI has placed 173 media stories in the U.S. worth $4.5 million in national publicity value, reaching more than 200 million Americans.
We sleep for 4-5 hours per day, but everyone is motivated. I know people who work in Kharkiv from bomb shelters, so I have no right to complain).
Netpeak Group Companies are launching new initiatives
As mentioned, Serpstat is part of Netpeak Group, and we would like to talk more about their contributions.
Inweb is an SEO and PPC agency. This company works mainly with Ukrainian companies, and in this challenging time, they also try to support their customers
Our coworkers contributed to humanitarian aid and also bought a bulletproof vest and army boots for friends. We all volunteer as much as we can.
Those who live in Western Ukraine help to accommodate Netpeak Group employees.
95% of Inweb clients are Ukrainian businesses. Therefore, we have developed an individual support program for those working during the war.
We also helped our customers to find a CMS for the quick configuration of landing pages instead of Russian analogs. We made a questionnaire for entrepreneurs and will answer them questions in the newsletter and social networks. It's letters on how to stop a business if necessary properly, communicate with your customers during a war, what rules to read, how to survive and save a company.
Choice31 as an online IT university, started a lot of initiatives to inform Ukrainians how to act in dangerous situations. If you have friends in Ukraine, please share this page. Our experts have collected answers to simple questions, from actions in case of severe anxiety or panic attack, to steps if you find unexploded ordnance or min. These simple rules may help save lives.
Moye misto (My City) is a crowdfunding platform where social projects are created, discussed, and implemented.
Employees from this company volunteer a lot, even in peaceful times. Now, our colleagues joined civilian guards that fight to protect individual cities and help to support current military infrastructure with body armor, first-aid kits, generators, batteries, helmets, and walkie-talkies. As a volunteer organization that cares for the city's well-being, our staff has provided thousands of insulin syringes and needles, tons of food, and medicine to maternity hospitals.
In GladPet, we help homeless animals from relocated families find new homes and assist in evacuation to shelters and other aids.
Furthermore, thanks to the support of the Netpeak Group, we continue to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine systematically. Employees of Netpeak Software, Serpstat, Inweb, Octopus event, Tonti Laguna join us as volunteers to help with logistics. In addition, the companies themselves support us financially so that our military receives everything needed.
RadASO (mobile app marketing), Tonti Laguna (a multi-product company with its digital projects), Saldo Apps (services for automating accounting for small businesses), and Netpeak Software (SaaS company, developing tools for SEO) tried to move their employees to safer places and continue to support users from all over the world. They contribute to the Ukrainian economy and help as they can. Volunteers have bought a lot of ammunition: professional binoculars, night vision devices, sleeping bags, diesel generators. In addition, activists organize evacuations, help orphans and children's hospitals, buy food, clothes, medicines, etc.
Octopus Events, an event agency focused on IT conferences, has opened free access to all videos from our 8P conference, 2021, previously in private archives. Team members began preparing for the conference in Bulgaria - Online Advertising, a forum for marketers and SEO specialists.
If you want to support us in our struggle, using Ukrainian products and services is the best way. Our companies are Ukrainian enterprises inside the biggest IT group, diversified to all branches of the economy!
