Civil Eats has a lengthy article about World Central Kitchen in Ukraine:
We’ve set up a corridor; we’ve got trucks coming in every day from Poland. We have six trucks arriving tonight, and we have warehouse spaces here in Lviv already, so we’re starting to stockpile food. We’re starting to get things set and to provide food to our restaurant partners. I think we have 10 kitchens now active in Lviv cooking. 


One of the big things that we’ve been making, especially at the train station, is a bograch soup. It’s kind of like a goulash, with potatoes, onions, carrots, and beef. It’s a very hearty, tasty, warm stew, which is perfect because the nights are so cold and families are arriving at 1:00 or 3:00 in the morning and it’s freezing out and this hot bowl of soup is probably the first hot meal they’ve had in a day or two and sometimes longer, depending on where they’re coming from. It’s comfort food—that’s what we’re trying to provide.

"Due to concerns about protests," the Montreal Symphony Orchestra canceled the performance of a 20-year-old Russian "prodigy" "who has been outspoken against the invasion of Ukraine." "'I do understand that my problems are very insignificant compared to those of people in Ukraine, including my relatives who live there,' he wrote."
