Ukrposhta, together with its partner, the Ukrainian airline WindRose, has resumed delivery of mail to the United States via Poland as part of a charter program to support small and medium-sized businesses. The charter will deliver exports to New York once a week, and on the way back it will deliver humanitarian aid to Ukraine.
The first flight from Warsaw to New York is scheduled for 8 March. Ukrposhta is planning to make such export and humanitarian aid flights regular in the near future.
In the United States, DNIPRO LLC acts as a consolidator and a freight agent to accept the cargo in its warehouse and to prepare it for transportation. Humanitarian goods are accepted at the following address in the USA: 645 West 1st Avenue, Roselle, NJ 07203.
For dimensional restrictions and additional information, please call +1 (908) 241-2190, +1 (888) 336-4776 or contact SaveUkraine@dniprollc.com. Medical supplies and food are accepted for transportation. All boxes must have an indication “UkrPoshta Dnipro LLC / Humanitarian Aid”.
Keeping Ukraine Businesses Open
Ukrposhta will deliver humanitarian goods from Poland to Ukraine and to destinations at its own expense. GLOBE AIR CARGO, as the General Agent (GSSA) of WindRose in the United States, undertakes all necessary work to book and coordinate cargo handling at the airport of departure.
“We have found an opportunity to support thousands of Ukrainian entrepreneurs, so that they do not lose their jobs and can deliver their goods to global trading platforms, including Amazon and Etsy. As these marketplaces joined the sanctions against Russia and blocked Russian sellers, I think it is right for Ukrainian entrepreneurs to benefit from the situation and offer their goods to the world. And Ukrposhta will help them,” said Igor Smelyansky, Director General, Ukrposhta.
“In addition, on the way from the United States to Ukraine, the charter will carry humanitarian aid from the international community. It will be food, medical supplies. Up to 40 tons of humanitarian aid can be loaded per flight. We call on foundations and organizations to help with funds for sending humanitarian goods to Ukraine. Ukraine needs your support.”
Delivery of postal items from the territory of Ukraine to Warsaw will be carried out by surface transport, after the necessary customs clearance in Ukraine. Currently, Ukrposhta is accepting parcels throughout Ukraine, where it is safe for the staff and customers and is transporting them by major highways from the western regions of Ukraine, as well as by highways from several key cities to send them abroad.
The Warsaw-New York flights will be operated within the framework of the existing charter program of cooperation between Ukrposhta and WindRose, which made 96 direct cargo flights to the United States in 2021 alone.
As it was previously reported, Ukrposhta, as part of the program to support Ukrainian SMEs selling their goods abroad, appealed to major marketplaces to support Ukrainian sellers who are unable to process and send orders on time due to Russia’s attack on Ukraine in the conditions of shelling and closed airspace.
Etsy, eBay, and Joom were the first to respond and a number of measures have already been taken to support Ukrainian sellers. Wish is preparing an assistance package for Ukrainian sellers.

I ordered a package through etsy from Ukraine on March 8th, I spoke with the seller and she shipped my package on March 11th. I still have not received it and the last tracking information was on March 13th and it was still in ukraine. Does anyone know what could be going on or when I may receive it ?
I bought an item on Etsy 1 day before the invasion in February. Its now April 3rd I haven’t received anything but the tracking said it was sent for transport that’s it. I’m in the United Kingdom as well. All you can do is wait I guess.
It takes over a month with the war I have order several items and receive them
I am still waiting for more information on this! I ordered multiple paintings from Ukraine on Etsy and expected delays. It’s been months, no update. I will keep waiting! I received one really beat up painting from Russia 3 months late, processed through Jamaica NY and thrown open over my patio fence. Fingers crossed everything will get to where it needs to go!
I ordered a keychain off Etsy October 4, 2022 and it said estimated delivery was 2-3 weeks. It is well over a month and nothing. Company said due to war and the bombing of the airport there are delays. Not sure what bombing he is referring to. Everything I have read recently shows everything is up and running. Am I incorrect? Is Etsy full of scammers?
How mail is moving internationally from Ukraine will likely vary significantly because of the ongoing hostilities, and recent drone attacks in western Ukraine have impacted portions of the country again that were fairly quiet.
As this information from Ukraine Post said, international mail is routed through Poland. There is no commercial air traffic into and out of Ukraine still and probably won’t be until hostilities stop completely. It has to be transported first by land.
