Olena Nalivkina was born and raised in Kyiv, Ukraine. At 20 years old Olena was was forced to seek refuge in United States after actively participating in the Maidan Revolution (Kyiv, 2014). She returned to Kyiv in 2019 finishing her B.S. in Aircraft Maintenance then returned to the United States intent on becoming an American citizen.
After working multiple jobs and acclimating to a new life in the United States Olena again set her sights on Ukraine by joining the Aeroscraft Corporation, providing defensive systems to the Ukrainian Border Guards and Military. This led to Olena working for the United States Congress where she was able to help people from all over the world. Throughout, her work with the Ukrainian community never stopped.
After Ukraine was further invaded by Russia, using her military, political and business connections, she took action to open her first non-profit that provides vital humanitarian help to people who are forced to leave Ukraine, including her own family. UA PULSE is a non-profit organization that makes an impact providing vital aid to the Ukrainian people; those fleeing their country and those fighting for its survival.
Olena's goal is to involve not only international community but the whole Ukrainian diaspora leaving abroad and encourage them to join and help.
Security. We provide lodging and transportation to the most vulnerable fleeing the war. Headquartered in Rzeszow, Poland, we help with the main influx of refugees as they stream across the border.
Safety. The need for medicine, body armor, helmets and night vision is skyrocketing and the corridors for aid getting into Ukraine are closing. Together, with our Ukrainian, Polish and American partners we are providing aid directly to Ukraine.
Our amazing team is committed to supporting the Ukrainian people. Our partners in Ukraine, Poland and the United States allow UA PULSE to cut through the bureaucracy delivering the right gear to the right people.
After participating in the successful overthrow of the Russian puppet president of Ukraine in 2014, UA PULSE founder, Olena Nalivkina came to the United States; this most recent Russian invasion has drawn her back, this time with considerable partners and resources.
We provide vital aid to the Ukrainian people; those fleeing their country and those fighting for its survival. Getting goods and services to the Ukrainians who need them is what we do.
