Timothy Snyder, a distinguished historian and professor at Yale University, is known for his expertise in the Making of Modern Ukraine. He has become a prominent figure in academia, with over a dozen books translated into 40 languages.

In October 2022, Snyder assumed the role of ambassador for the UNITED24 fundraising platform. In November, he initiated a fundraiser for the Shahed Hunter anti-drone system to safeguard Kyiv, which concluded successfully in February 2023, raising a total of $1,268,196.

In a recent Substack post, Snyder commented that this winter, similar to the previous one, Russia is actively engaged in undermining Ukrainian critical infrastructure to deprive Ukrainian civilians of essential services such as electricity and water. This destructive campaign involves the continuous launch of cruise missiles and Iranian-made (or Iranian-style) Shahed drones targeting civilian facilities. Moreover, Russia is utilizing drones and cruise missiles to specifically target Ukrainian grain intended for export to Africa and the Middle East.

Earlier this Fall, Safe Skies raised $950,000 in six weeks to supply drone detection systems to provide airspace awareness in the  Sumy, Odesa, Mikolaïv, and Kherson regions. Snyder has set a goal to repeat the $950,000 feat in six weeks to protect four more regions- Kharkiv, Kirovohrad, Poltava, and Cherkasy- from drones and cruise missiles.
