About 5PM tonight, I got this in an e-mail from Restream (with a subject of “ Restream stands in solidarity with Ukraine”:
My name is Alex, and I’m the co-founder and CEO of Restream. I’m also a father, husband, and above all today, a proud Ukrainian.
As you likely already know, yesterday Russian forces conducted airstrikes all across Ukraine, including Vinnytsia, my hometown, and where Andrew Surzhynskyi and I founded Restream in 2015.
In the last 24 hours, we’ve received an outpouring of support from friends and colleagues, many inquiring about the safety of our team and ways they can help. Here’s an update on the two things Restream is doing today to support our employees and the people of Ukraine.
The safety of our teammates is always a top priority. Last month, we offered and arranged the relocation of our Ukraine-based employees and their families. Through the dedicated efforts of many teammates, this group, representing one-third of our workforce, is now relocated to safety.
Solidarity with Ukraine
To assist with humanitarian efforts, Restream is making a donation of $100K to Red Cross Ukraine. In addition, we’ve compiled a list of Ukraine-based and international organizations that are assisting those affected. I encourage you to check it out and make a contribution.
We are monitoring the situation closely and will continue doing what we can to work towards peace and safety.
Thank you for being part of the Restream family.
All the best,
Co-Founder and CEO

As you pray for the Ukraine, pray for the “Tech heart” of Restream too.
