People are dying. Families are being torn apart. Cities are being reduced to ashes and rubble.

The Russian invasion of Ukraine is creating a humanitarian disaster and a refugee crisis in Europe on a scale not seen since the WW2.

Vladimir Putin’s barbaric assault on Russia’s democratic neighbour is unjustified, unacceptable, unimaginable.

We want to help. Our readers want to help. Dozens of news titles run by Newsquest across the UK are joining forces to convey a simple message – let’s give what we can and do what we can do.

Newsquest, the owner of The Scottish Farmer, has pledged to donate proceeds from sales of some of its largest newspapers to the Red Cross DEC Ukraine Humanitarian appeal, which is dedicated to helping and saving those affected by this horrific and bloody war. We’re asking you to join us.

At The SF, our team of reporters have been reporting on the heroic efforts of communities to rally around Ukraine's people to provide aid, supplies and financial support – especially those selflessly putting themselves in the firing line by heading to the warzone with emergency supplies. Some of those we have already reported on are linked to farming.

That’s why to accompany our pledge to donate to the Red Cross appeal today, we’ve launched a JustGiving page. We’re joining forces with a single appeal across all our newspapers, allowing readers to contribute to this worthy cause if they want to join us in doing what we can to help.

All monies will go immediately to the British Red Cross Society DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal for its work in Ukraine, helping those affected by the ongoing crisis.

All of Newsquest’s titles across the UK are united in our efforts to support the people of Ukraine. Please donate what you can via the link to our JustGiving page, below.

As we are #ThereWithYou, we hope you will stand with us and be #ThereWithUkraine.
