Operational activity

Manager, part of the evacuation group

Oleksandra Sakharuk

Oleksandra has experience working as a marketer in management positions in the IT sector. Thanks to this, Sasha can build coherent and effective teamwork systems. She is also engaged in journalism. Since the full-scale invasion began, she has filmed and reported on the events in Kyiv, Chernihiv, Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson regions.

During 2022–2023, Oleksandra worked for the Ukrainian independent media “Ikla” as a strategist and head of the journalism department. Thanks to long-term communication with residents of frontline areas, Oleksandra discovered a need for a comprehensive evacuation system, and the NE SAMI project was born.


Oleksandra Kachanova

Oleksandra is a restaurateur who co-owns several gastro projects in Kyiv, so she has extensive experience working with people and implementing projects from ground zero. Oleksandra is also skilled in creative communications, having worked in advertising agencies as a strategist.

With her family, she moved from Donetsk in 2014: war, forced relocation, regional differences, problems of adaptation of displaced persons, lack of support from the state, and more were all part of her experience.

From the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Oleksandra:

  • Established a system of food aid, feeding around 1,500 people daily for two months;
  • Worked in the Ukrainian independent media “Ikla” from the beginning of the project’s existence as a strategist and chief manager.
  • Co-founded the Ne Sami project because of her understanding of the context of IDPs and her concern for Ukraine and its society.



Tetiana Oskolova

Tetiana has been a marketer for about 8 years, 5 of them as a CMO. She comes from the Donetsk region and has many relatives who faced the consequences of war and occupation.

After the war started, she joined the cyber forces of Ukraine and launched the “Palma Mertsalova” project designed to debunk myths about Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Thanks to this project, she met the Ne Sami team. She launched the “Voices of the Occupation” column, with the videos attracting the attention of the pro-Ukrainian population in the occupied territories. In a series of videos, Ukrainians personally say that neither Luhansk nor Donetsk have forgotten where their real home is and are waiting for victory.

Currently, Tetiana works as a marketer in the military industry, and in her spare time, she volunteers. She believes Ne Sami is a unique project regarding the evacuation of the population. It’s also about the opportunity to start a new life and reduce the risk of going back under fire because of adaptation difficulties and financial problems.


Olha Chabanova

Olga majored in publishing and editing. Since then, she has worked at the same university as a teacher while working as a journalist and editor in the independent Ukrainian media “Ikla.” Currently, Olga is an editor at the Osnova publishing house and the head of the publishing department at the “ROBYMO VAM NERVY” NGO.

She’s skilled at creating structured and emotional texts that move people. These skills come in handy for the Ne Sami project.

Sound editor

Pavlo has been producing music and working with sound for years. In 2022, he worked on sound editing for the “Ikla” project. He currently works on his music project, “Berliner Doner,” independently producing music and voice.

This enables the “Ne Sami” project to speak confidently and spread information about its activities online as efficiently as possible.

Anna had to save herself from the war unleashed by the Russians twice, losing her home and starting everything from scratch. She understands the fears of the Ne Sami wards, afraid to leave everything and learn to live anew in a foreign city. This is where she sees the critical mission of the NGO: providing people with evacuation and, what’s more, support at the beginning of a new stage in life.

Her life is in motion, and so is her work. Solia has been creating animations for over 4 years, helping draw attention to the Ne Same project online. While the digital space is overcrowded with content, she manages to capture audiences so that more people can learn about Ne Sami.

She learned about the Ne Sami project from her daughter Oleksandra and decided to join to help adults and children affected by the terrible war. Olena’s father is from the Luhansk region, so she understands the pain of forcibly displaced persons. Paying a visit, helping, listening, getting acquainted with the city, issuing documents, meeting with doctors, having baked goods, and dreaming about a peaceful future – this is how her meetings go at KO-HATA sites. After the victory, Olena dreams about rebuilding the cities and villages of Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
