The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has sided with Ukraine and is seeking support
At the 94th Academy Awards, a moment of silence was observed in honor of those fighting for Ukraine and their lives.

"Resources are limited, and as a global society, we can accomplish much more." We ask that you help Ukraine in any way you can by using the hashtag #StandWithUkraine. "
