    Katya and Vitaly (Kharkiv)

    February 24 will be remembered forever for everyone who came under brutal shelling from an enemy country! For my family, it became a difficult test. My name is Katya and this is my life story in these difficult times. We woke up at 4:40 a.m. from the loud shelling that the «enemy» (who seems to have once been a brother, but these are just my thoughts and please don’t judge me) began to pelt the outskirts of Kharkiv.


    Denis (Kharkiv)

    Greetings, readers of this page. My name is Denis, I am 25 years old. And I can proudly say that all these 25 years I lived in the hero city of Kharkiv. War is not a new phenomenon for me, I was already in Donbas in 2014, but this time it caught me by surprise, like many other people in our cities.

    About us

    UA Lifeline is a humanitarian organization based in Lviv, Ukraine whose sole mission is to serve individuals, families, and the military in Ukraine who are suffering from the effects of this atrocious and apocalyptic war initiated by Russia and to support those in the fight!

    The founder

    Robert S. Nuey

    Sergeant First Class retired US Army, Security Contractor and an International Chef Robert S. Nuey is an US Army retired veteranresided in Ukraine in 2006 and again in 2017. He currently heads up a humanitarian organization called UA Lifeline which raises humanitarian support for refugee relief in Ukraine. Robert retired from the US Army with an honorable discharge in 2004 having served just short of twenty two years. He was stationed in Korea, Ft. Polk, LA, Ft. Knox, KY, Ft. Benning, GA and Ft. Bragg, NC throughout his career. Immediately after retiring, Robert was employed as a Private Security Contractor working with the US Department of State’s Worldwide Personal Protection Service. He served two years in Afghanistan and eight years in Iraq. UA Lifeline was formed on 24 February at the start of hostilities and the war with Russia. This is Robert’s response to aiding and assisting Ukraine and her people.


    Our organization has the capability to go deep into high risk areas to distribute aid and supplies to the people that need it the most.

    Our team is comprised U.S. Military veterans that reside in Ukraine, alongside with Ukrainian locals whom themselves have suffered from the horrifying realities of war that was initiated by Russia.

    Donations that are received are utilized towards housing, subsistence, utilities, clothing, health/hygiene items, and cleaning supplies needed to maintain our two refugee safehouses.

    Additionally, in order to continue to do the good work that is done in the far East of the country, we must have the means to purchase fuel, and to pay for maintenance costs our donated vehicle, Other expenditures associated with these missions also include lodging and meals for our team as they travel to these outlying areas.

    We are partnered with Ukrainian Freedom Fund who acts as our 501(3)C and has been designated as a humanitarian non-profit charitable organization, so yes, all donations are tax deductible.

    One of the main reasons UA Lifeline exists is because many of the larger organizations have not been as effective as the smaller grassroots organizations such as ours.

    We pride ourselves with the high level of integrity, professionalism, determination, and focus that we as a team and collectively share to ensure mission success in all aspects of our operation.
