Hi! It’s Myroslava.

Today, the great people of a great country celebrate a great holiday - Independence Day. 32 years ago, Ukraine resumed its existence.

However, it is now forced to fight for its independence by fighting the Russians.

There is a bloody war going on, but Ukrainians are not giving up and are trying to live on. Even under these circumstances, they celebrate their day.

For the second year in a row, Ukraine has been celebrating Independence Day in the face of a full-scale war.

If you don’t like what Google is doing, spend a few moments seeing if some non-Google alternatives work for you:

Android —> GrapheneOS, /e/, Droidian, and more
Chrome —> Firefox, Safari, (Lynx :))
Docs —> cryptpad, Nextcloud docs, Collabora online
Drive —> Nextcloud
Gmail —> protonmail, mail from someone like Mythic Beasts
Search —> DuckDuckGo, StartPage

You don’t have to change everything at once, or commit to anything immediately. But it is Google, so you may be forced to move at some point!
