Pasta as well as Pampers




JULY 14-17


The past is never dead. It’s not even past.

- William Faulkner

Driving east to the Polish-Ukrainian border for the second time and once again reminded by the fragility of us humans and our co-existence.

The fact that we had a pregnant woman, a car-sick 3-year old with a healthy appetite for pizza and pringles as well as an over-anxious lady who had been hospitalised in Leipzig for a panic attack created some additional challenges and improved my stopping-under-almost-any-circumstances-skills dramatically.

But at the same time did we get numerous positive reminders, compliments and appreciation for the things we do and the T-shirt I wore for a day. It appears that certain words and expressions are truly international and are understood by almost everyone regardless language, age or nationality.

The below picture captures the trip quite well. People that actively help, those who have their ‘heart’ in the right place (or on the right car) and the innocent Ukrainians that need our help.



Driving people (8 in total together with Peter) to Holland means one night in a hotel somewhere.

Payment for the hotel and meals for ourselves is up to us, so finding sponsors was relevant to cover the cost for the refugees.

The trip wouldn’t have been possible without the help of so many contributors. I would like to thank them for their trust and generosity.

It is thanks to them that we have been able to execute our plan and bring 8 Ukrainians safely to the Netherlands.

On the 25th of June we did a ‘food and supplies raising’ action in the grocery store Albert Heijn in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht and the 9th of July in Amsterdam. People could buy some extra groceries and donate them to humanitarian aid programs in the Ukraine. With the promise that we would drive it there ourselves.

Donated food and supplies in the storage room before transportation to Medyka.

That turned out to be a huge success and we had approximately 800 to 900 kilos of supplies (with an estimated value of around 5000 euro) in our cars on the way to the east of Poland. Pasta, pampers, soup, hygiene products, baby wipes, salt, rice, lots of baby food and much more.



Laura and her partner were one of the hundreds of people who donated selflessly and generously. They left a complete cart full of essentials for us to drive to the border.

Kees is an ex-colleague living in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht and who upon learning that we would do this action in his home-town spontaneously offered to help. Knowing some of the shoppers Kees did an amazing job informing people about the objective of the action and providing advice on what to give.

Also Patricia and her partner Peter as well as Pascal did a great job in collecting the supplies, convincing people about the need and providing them with info that we would drive it ourselves to Medyka. 


Incredible; a cart full or essentials with the anticipation that we would deliver.




It happend only once during this trip although severe enough for a hefty shift in cargo. 

As you can imagine did the yellow boxes not stay in their asigned seat as they didn't have a seatbelt on. 

Luckily no damage to the windshield or interior of the car.

Almost everything from the storage fitted in our two Teslas. A problem (at least for me) was the so called 'fanthom-breaking' that occurs from time to time while driving on AutoPilot.

Autopilot is a great feature that helps on these long trips as the car almost drives itself if you activate autopilot and stay below 150 km/h. But occasionally it creates a bit of stress as it will break rather strongly out of the blue. Probably caused by old information in the maps and sat-nav systems that for example still works with data from the time there were roadworks on that stretch but which have been finished. 

When the car then suddenly decides that the max speed is 80 while doing 120 it starts breaking without warning.

With a load like this one these events aren't funny at all.




The first day turned out to be uneventful aside from to much traffic jams, accidents and diversions due to roadworks.

We made charging stops in Deventer, Lauenau and Blankenfelde before reaching the known hotel in Ilowa, Poland.

You can read how well we know the hotel in my previous blog. Click here for the link.

The next morning we again had a nice and quit breakfast on the terrace in a crisp and clear summer morning.

They second day started with a compliment as the Ukrainian hotel manager really liked my T-shirt.

Feedback from Ukraine

We already received word from the south of Ukraine that the supplies we delivered to Medyka have been transported into the Ukraine already. 

They have been made available to community centers in the cities of Liubashivka and Zelenohirs'ke in the Odessa Oblast.

It was planned to go to Bolhrad and Izmail but had to be rerouted last-minute due to Russian bombings in the area and blocked roads.

The driver has been covering around 1200 kilometer to get there from the Polish border. 

It is people like Laura and Kees that lift your spirit when also dealing with shoppers that clearly have no intention to help and provide you with incredible feedback like ‘It’s all fake news,don't believe what you see on social media’, ‘No we don’t need more foreigners in our country’, ‘It’s my free day today’, ‘Let them figure it out themselves’ or ‘No, sorry I’m on a tight budget myself (while shopping for groceries at Albert Heijn?) so I can’t help you’.

It’s people that help, inquire and give positive feedback that you have to remember. The ones that didn’t hesitate to put a tray of baby food in their cart even though they clearly didn’t have small children (any more), or those that inquired what was most needed to go and get these items and of course people who not only donate but also provide positive feedback.

Driving around with a Ukrainian flag on your car or a clear statement on your shirt invites reactions.

From a man on the street in Przemysl that yelled ‘nice shirt’ or people that slow down to drive next to me, honk their horn and give a thumbs-up while pointing at the signage on the car.

People who want to take a picture with me, ask where they can buy one (€ 20,- a piece / link to hub sos ua) or people who just walk up to us and ask what we do and express their gratitude, appreciation and respect.

One man however didn’t agree with the text. He came up to me and said that my shirt was all wrong. Initially I thought he might be a Russian and a Putin-fan but it turned out the opposite. He was of the opinion that it should have said ‘kill Putin’.

Not sure if I agree with the men although it could help if Putin was not in the picture at some point in the very near future. The loss of face will probably prevent Putin from deviating from the current path of destruction, pain and suffering.

Him being removed from the Kremlin however does not solve this problem as one of his henchmen, one of the the ‘Siloviki’ (see more about these illusive characters in section 09) will probably be appointed as his successor. One that grants him immunity and protect his illegal or criminal obtained fortunes.

Much the same as what he did for Boris Yeltsin who (back in 1999) in return of protection helped a then rather unknown low-level KGB-bureaucrat from Dresden and Leningrad to become the ruler of Russia. 



One picture puts it all in perspective in my opinion and it resonated with me as the statement was referencing to one of my own motivations to help. Ukraine has to be allowed and assisted to stop the agressor as he might not stop there.

Putin is on a path of expansion to restore a great empire and all Russia’s near abroad territories like Georgia, Kyrgyzstan and the Ukraine are at risk. He learned from Glasnost that loosening the reigns can lead to chaos and the dismantlement of a once great nation.

He watched it happen and learned never to let it happen again. Russia has always been a bureaucratic autocracy (and will remain so according to various scholars) and Putin is not letting his grip dwindle, so without internal checks and balances or outside pushback and appropriate response even Poland, the baltics and Moldavia are not out of his scope.


So when I passed the truck with the pictured phrase I radioed Peter that I would make a quick stop.

Pulling into a parking lot I waited to let it pass so I could get behind it again and make a better picture.



Nobody knows what Putin thinks or what his motivation is to create so much destruction, instability and uncertainty. Only Vladimir himself knows what drives him. Whether it’s superpower nostalgia, internal reasons to remain in control in Russia or an aversion to democracy we might never know.

Or maybe there is something else driving the man who together with the so called 'Siloviki' intensifies his grip on the country and aims for territorial expansion and global recognition as a superpower.

The word Siloviki means ‘the powerful’ or ‘men of force’ and they use their power not necessarily to enforce the law but to increase control and order even when this goes against the law.


Aleksandr Dugin aka Putin's Brain

It is said that Aleksandr Dugin is one of those surrounding Putin and feeding him with what is  called the ‘heartland theory’, aiming for an illiberal totalitarian Russian empire covering the Eurasian continent from Vladivostok to Dublin. Dugin is sometimes referenced to as ‘Putin’s Brain’ and has been highly influential in the annexation of Crimea.

The Siloviki are mostly from the former KGB and fuel the anxiety that breeds the believe that the US is out to destroy Russia, that NATO is an aggressor that is expanding it’s territory and that Russia should be getting the recognition it deserves as a global superpower. Regardless of the consequences.




With a decision to make about a Leipzig detour, a detour to the new Krakow supercharger (opened since our last trip) that we had to see according to Peter and long waiting times to charge we ran late getting to Medyka. I’d say that the two most remarkable things that day would have been the very visible large number of military planes parked at Krakow airport and the Canadians Stephen and Kate that run the food storage in Medyka for distribution to Ukraine. Who would have thought that 2 Canadians travel to Medyka to help as volunteers in a European conflict.

Or maybe I should add the Polish driver who was frustrated with the layout of the supercharger in Katowice (which is in fact a disaster in it’s set-up) and ‘parked’ his car slightly different from what you’d expect.

Peter and I agree that even though it’s more east than west, the drivers and chauffeurs of both cars and motorcycles on the roads east of Wroclaw make it look like the wild-west. I am not a nervous driver but from time to time I had to cringe because of the irresponsible and dangerous acts these maniacs laid on the asphalt both inside and outside the designated driving lanes. It's like they don’t know the warning ‘on the road you don’t get another quarter’, referencing the numerous racing games you used to be able to play on a gaming console or a computer. We have seen the mishaps of such behaviour on other trips but fortunately nothing on this one. 

On the second day we made charging stops at Wroclaw, Katowice, Krakow and Rzeszow.



Joseph Stalin


Unbeknown too many (at least until recently) and although long dead both Stalin and Khrushchev still play a part in the current conflict. You might wonder what a man like Stalin is doing in this story. The man has been dead for almost 70 years.

But the fact that there are many Russian speaking Ukrainians can be traced back to the so called Holodomor from the 1930’s. This manmade famine that ravaged the Ukraine in 1932 and 1933 was inflicted upon them by Joseph Stalin who demanded all the grain from the Ukraine for the USSR. It was sold to western-Europe to pay for the industrialisation and the military of the Soviet-union.

When Stalin was confronted with the consequences of his own actions, namely that so many Ukrainians had starved to death due to shortages in food, he relocated numerous Russians from other parts of the Soviet Union to replenish the workforce so grain production could continue. They were mostly send to the two regions that are so much in the news these days; Luhansk and Donetsk.

One could argue that Putin has a point that there are many Russians in the Ukraine. I think he should offer them a paid for return to Russia (with ample compensation) instead of taking the land that is Ukrainian territory.

Even after many trips to Poznan and Przemysl it remains a strange phenomena that complete strangers decide to step into your car and allow you to drive 1475 kilometer to an unknown destination. Is it trust or lack of alternatives. Or both ?

After arriving at the centre where we would meet the passengers all drivers have to report and get registered before you can get onto the premises. You’ll receive a bright coloured bracelet indicating which areas you are able to enter and which not. This to prevent that people who don’t have anything to do with the living quarters might be able to roam the halls where people sleep and keep their belongings.

Sometimes the police, who is always present, will do an inspection of the car. This time they waved us in and did not bother to inspect the cars. We’re not sure is it because of the Teslas or because we look trustworthy.

Once in, we drive up to the building to meet our fellow travellers for the next two days. This time they already decided who would be with whom in the car and that is fine with us. As long as I don’t have a long person behind me I’m okay as my chair is usually far back. I ended up with the maxi-cosi behind me which has many advantages but as I would experience one pungent downside.

With surprisingly little luggage we were on our way relatively quick. We left Przemysl around 8:45 on Saturday-morning.


A colourfull bracelet. One refugee asked me why I didn't remove it after leaving the centre. She apparently considered it to be degrading which from one perspective could be seen as such. From a safety perspective I think it was quite okay.


Irene, always communicating to take care of the refugees.

(shown with permision)



Volunteers play an extremely important role in this whole endeavour. Whether it’s organising things at the Przemysl side or when it comes to welcoming and placing these lost, disoriented and vulnerable people.

Irene is one of these fantastic persons who is stationed in Przemysl and is arranging the selection, communication and counselling of Ukrainians. Much the same applies to Debbie who is on site in Przemysl and in the Ukraine, Olga who coordinates and helps in Limburg, Netty from Schijndel as you can read in my previous blog (link) or countless others in the OMW-organisation who all assist, support and encourage.

They all are indispensable when it comes to bringing Ukrainians to Holland orderly, efficiently and most important safely. 



The new and wide stretch of road between Przemysl and Rzeszow. 


A vomiting 3-year old and a 7 to 8 month pregnant lady who is emptying her stomach in a bag from time to time makes the drive different one could say.

It started just outside Przemysl on the start of the third day and at the beginning of the drive home. ‘Morris we have to stop’ proclaimed the older lady next to me. Based on some Ukrainian communication the message was relaid to the front of the car that we had an emergency of sorts. Easier said than done when driving on the highway at 100 km an hour. Luckily it was a quiet Saturday morning and a brand new and very wide highway with sufficient space to pull over and park safely on the shoulder of the road against the safety-railing.

Unfortunately some of the damage was already done and cleaning a maxi-cosi suddenly provides you with an insight that the product developers probably don’t  include an easy in-situ cleaning in their specification or list of requirements. Well they should have, I learned.

It turns out that the smell still lingering in the car isn’t helping if you’re not feeling well, as during the next couple of hundred kilometers also the mother filled a bag a couple of times.

Eat - Vomit - Repeat could have been the slogan for the trip as especially the 3-year-old loved pizza, pringles and sausages. 



It is rather remarkable how effective and efficient you become in making a quick stop safely during the trip. It turns out that roadwork with the considerable smaller lanes and concrete side blocks are the real challenge. Breaking strongly to get into a so called ‘nothaltebucht’ (emergency bay) doesn’t help the passengers or their stomach but gets you there in one piece. The incredible acceleration of the Tesla from a standstill ensures that we could get back onto the highway safely. 

I tried to convey the message that it was not a problem but you get the sense that it doesn’t comfort the mother who isn’t feeling all that well to begin with.

When we were approaching Utrecht where we would drop off the mother and 3-year-old I asked Peter who the owner was of the child seat. He would have a seat with a story and a smell.

The dry remark over the transceiver (that we used to communicate between the cars) was that the garbage-man was now the new owner. Once we had safely handed over the passengers to the people at the Jaarbeurs refugee center the maxi-cosi was ‘donated to the dumpster’ at the parking lot in Utrecht. 


All is well at the supercharger Lutterberg



As mentioned before do the decisions and actions of Stalin still have an impact on current events in the Ukraine. A similar although slightly different story can be told about the Crimea.

It was Nikita Khrushchev, then first secretary of the communist party of the USSR or CCCP and ruler of the Soviet Union who ‘gave’ Crimea to the Ukrainians in 1954. Including the roughly 1 million Russians (or then Soviets) living there.

Within the Soviet Union this was an easy thing to do. Both Russia and Ukraine were being controlled by the Politburo in Moscow and as such a 'change' without much impact for the inhabitants of the Island at that time.

The official reason given have never been really bought but it is suspected that Khrushchev's aim was to increase Russian influence in a for the USSR important region, the Ukraine and its grain (simply by adding Russians) and to please Ukrainian officials and higher-ups to solidify support for himself within the Union.

As the inhabitants of the Crimea were mostly from Russian decent it became an issue in 1991 when the Soviet Union imploded and Ukraine became independent. 


Nikita Khruschev



We met Sergey at a supercharger where we were both charging our Tesla. He asked me why we had a Ukrainian flag on my car in the shape of a heart and after a brief explanation he expressed his gratitude for helping his fellow country men & women and made us an offer. If and when we would come to Ukraine we could have free charging on his network. It turned out he was the founder of Ecofactor, a company that is operating and selling charging stations for EV’s all over Ukraine.

It’s certainly an invitation I’ll call upon if we decide to visit Ukraine once this madness is over and people can return to their homes or in many cases new or other ones. All people that I’ve driven to the Netherlands received the same offer. That is that my wife and I would drop by in their home country with the Tesla, for a coffee or a beer should they stay in touch and invite us to visit. 

Sergey and his family are among the ones who have the means to be somewhere else without total reliance on the generosity of others. And it’s great to see that also these more fortunate Ukrainians care for their own and not just for themselves. We had an interesting talk and offered him to put the Ukraine heart on his Tesla as well. He agreed and he is now the first and so far only Ukrainian Tesla-owner with a distinct ‘badge of honour’.

The Alyosha in Murmansk, a 35 meter high and 5000 ton weighing concrete statue of a soldier (which I visited together with our youngest son Vincent in 2019) is one of them. It towers high above the city on a hill to the north and is a very visible, permanent and stark reminder for all people in Murmansk what sacrifices have been brought and what pain might have to be suffered to keep the country's enemies at bay. It still receives daily vistors who lay flowers and pay tribute.

Putin is now calling on this collective pride and shared memory of accomplishment to motivate and mobilise the population regarding this invasion. The current fight and war-efforts also done by Nato allies should be to allow Ukrainians their own choices not to ‘defeat’ Russia. Even though they should act differently and get rid of Putin rather sooner than later we also have to remember that most Russians are more victim than felon and that we owe it, to a large extent, to the Soviets that we live in a free Europe devoid of Nazism and fascism. 

Much has been said about the by Putin declared de-nazification of Ukraine. It is in fact a bit cynical as the freedom we have enjoyed for the last 77 years is largely thanks to the Soviets and Ukrainians who helped to de-nazify Europe.

Around 4 to 5 million Ukrainians gave their life fighting the Nazis during WW2. That is about half of the total population of the Netherlands at that time. As many as 10 or 11 million Soviet soldiers died during the war and a staggering total of 27 million Soviets have lost their lives during the war whether in battle or as a result of bombings, killings or starvation.

Many references to the 'great patriotic war', as the Russians call WW2, constantly remind the people of Russia about the effort and sacrifices the Soviet society has made to defeat the Nazis in Europe. 

The flag outside the ufr2022-home that we visited to drop of computers and some old Nato-rations that we got from Kees, shows how some Russians view this conflict.

It’s Putins war not the Russians.


Pragmatic Polish Parking

The advantage of the detour was that we could avoid a 80 kilometer long stretch of roadworks between Ilowa and the German border but the downside was that we had to drive longer on the first day.

Luckily were the sometimes incredible long traffic jams on the other side of the divider and could we make decent timing on the drives between superchargers. We arrived in good time and could get a good night sleep in a decently priced hotel not far from the autobahn.



On the way to Przemysl and Medyka we received word that on a previous drive a lady was dropped off at the hospital in Leipzig as she had a panic attack and was admitted for observation. The On My Way organisation inquired if we could pick here up to be re-united with her 14-year old son who was already at the refugee-centre in Utrecht.

After some discussion about our schedule as well as charging-stops and a few questions about her status we agreed to change our plan and reroute via Dresden and Leipzig to pick her up on Saturday-evening or Sunday-morning. As we already booked 7 rooms in a hotel in Zagan (western Poland) we had to cancel those and find some affordable ones in the Leipzig area.

Peter was grumpy about the increased cost per room as he kept referring to the spacious rooms in the hotel in Ilowa for only 58 euros. I was less concerned about the cost and was aiming for a good night rest in a decent hotel. Not only for myself but also for the exhausted mother who was at the end of her rope. Being 7 or 8 month pregnant isn’t easy in itself I’ve been told but the impact of having been on the road for the last two weeks while fleeing your country with smal children doesn’t require much imagination.

Driving east behind Peter as seen from his car at the end of the day.



Anyone who has children can remember how cute they once were (and maybe still are). Nadiya is not an exception.

Aside from the numerous times she relocated the contents of her stomach to the bottom of the maxi-cosi (and at least once on the back of my seat) she was a normal three year old. Cautious in the beginning. Who is this strange man that insists on fastening the seatbelt. But after a while I even got a smile and at the end of the trip did she allow me to carry her up the stairs in Utrecht to get to the shelter reception for a check in.

At the end of the first day however she got into a sour mode at which point even her mother who also was exhausted couldn’t calm her down. We had been on the road for more than 12 hours so I can’t blame her for calling it quits in the good-mood-department.

It’s amazing what a youtube video of Kabouter Plop can achieve at those moments. Even though she couldn’t understand a word of the song, the video of the 'Kabouterdans' calmed her down and she hasn’t made a ruckus the rest of the trip.

A parting smile is not only a sign of the connection we’ve build over the last two days but also a signal of gratitude. 


Eating a croissant at the Supercharger in Katowice - North




A scene that says more than a thousand words.

The majority of people that flee Ukraine and travel to foreign countries is female or underaged and this trip wasn’t any different. A family of 5 with Inna, her pregnant daughter Maria and three little girls including Nadiya. Furthermore Vera who would be re-united with her daughter and grandchildren in Meijel and last but not least Svetlana whom we picked up in Leipzig.

After dropping Vera in Meijel where a large group of family was waiting when we arrived at her destination we continued to Utrecht where Maria and Svetlana were seen by a doctor who had been waiting for us. He was kind enough to wait beyond his scheduled hours as we had been communicating with him from Germany earlier that day about the condition of the two and he agreed to see them as soon as they arrived.

After a hug and goodbyes we finally could head home. 4 days and 3300 kilometers had ended well. No accidents, incidents or arguments and no premature conclusion of the pregnancy. Eight tired, confused and disoriented women were safely at a safe place and the end of a long journey will be the start of a new chapter.

It depictes a brighter future for the Ukraine.

It is the strong will and collective ambition of the Ukrainians to be and remain independant and I believe that we should support them in their effort against a ruthless, egocentric & destructive dictator that is destroying their country for no other reasons than shameless self enrichment, unbridled hunger for power and unparalleled grandeur delusion.




UKRAINE by Leonora Yanko 2022 ®

In case you're still on the fence about the disregard for human life of the current president of the Russia I can refer you to the books written by Laura Starink, Catherine Belton and Masha Gessen. They will enlighten as well as frigthen you on the motivation and methods of the unscrupulous and ambitious man responsible for the current destruction of Ukrainian property and murder of both Ukrainians as well as Russians.
