Innocent Christian Refugee Family from Ukraine is being held in Jail – With False Criminal Accusations! Demand Justice Now! 
Dear Friends,

I am Christina, a close Family Friend of the Makarenko Family. Together with Vitalii, another close Family Friend, we try to raise awareness of this urgent case of three innocent Family members being wrongly held in jail with false accusations!

A few days ago, the Makarenko Family – including Mother, Father and Son were arrested in their home and taken into jail, where they are currently held. No arrest warrant or evidence were provided from the police. Two older brothers and a younger sister are being left behind with the help us.
The three arrested family members – Mother, Father and Son are being falsely accused of severe crimes with multiple charges against them! These could result in a life-in-prison-sentence in the United States for every accused family member or Deportation back to Ukraine - where an excruciating war is happening right now. 

The news were extremely unexpected and overwhelmed us all! They came out of nowhere and have no ground whatsoever! The family is shocked and doesn't understand what is happening and where these accusations come from. The accusations are completely false and need to be defeated and ultimately dismissed!

We know that the FAMILY IS INNOCENT, but we need to make our voices heard to have this case entirely dismissed.

In efforts to save the family, we found a criminal lawyer who agreed to work with us. Due to the complexity of this case, multiple severe charges against them, and three family members in custody, we need to raise enough funds to enable the lawyers ongoing work. The Lawyer’s legal defence is crucial right now and the only way to get the family out of jail as soon as possible. For our Donation link (DonorBox) and more information, please just send me a message.

Please, we ask you to help us in this fight for Justice! Every day that passes with the family being held in custody -  greater personal, financial and emotional damage is being weighted onto all members of the family and all involved parties. We need to find a way out of this. 

Every single signature will be appreciated and will directly support the Family's Defence in Court! Help us spread the word and raise awareness on this matter! Share with Family and Friends, with Colleagues, on your social media and other media outlets. 

We greatly appreciate your consideration and are beyond thankful for any support, for your thoughts and prayers.

We believe in Justice! We believe in the Truth! We believe that good and caring people are out there who are able and willing to help!

The Truth will always win. 

May God be with us and protect us all. 
- Christina and Vitalii 


Family Background: 
The Makarenko Family came to the USA as Refugees from Ukraine six years ago as a Family of six - Mother, Father, three sons and a younger daughter.
As a hard-working family, they have established multiple successful family businesses, with which they have built a high and trustworthy reputation in Florida and all over the country. During their time in the States, they have never been accused of any criminal charge and never had any issue with the legal system.
They are a Christian Family, Believers in God, members of the Church and get together on the weekends to pray in their family circle and community.
With close relatives still living in Ukraine, we pray for everyone in the US and Europe every day in these unbelievably hard times. But we know that we can get through this.
The Family always helped neighbours and others in need and gained many friends throughout the time.
Now, they need your help!
Help us save the future of an Innocent Christian Refugee Family from Ukraine! If any more questions, please feel free to contact us! We want to be as transparent as possible. 

Together we’ll find a way out of this!
