[INSERT NAME and ADDRESS OF GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL or President or Prime Minister of your country]
Dear [insert name]:
Re: Please Stand With Ukraine
I kindly ask that you and our government stand with the people of Ukraine who want to live in peace and prosperity, free of Russia’s aggression.
Since invading Ukraine in 2014 and illegally occupying Crimea, Russia has waged a war of aggression in the east Ukrainian oblasts of Donetsk and Luhansk. This war has cost Ukraine over 14,000 dead, over 30,000 wounded and 1.5 million internally displaced people.
Russia is again threatening a further invasion of sovereign Ukrainian territory to re-establish its empire and protect Putin’s kleptocratic oppressive regime.
We must respond with unity and resolve to Russia’s increasing threats against Ukraine and other countries in the region. I call on you to support:
- Providing Ukrainians with the necessary military and economic support to defend themselves.
- Accelerating a NATO Membership Action Plan and EU membership for Ukraine.
- Increasing sanctions on Russia to deter further aggression against Ukraine.
- Stopping the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from becoming operational.
Ukraine needs us to act now to support Ukraine’s independence and prevent a further Russian invasion.

Specifically, the UWC calls for:
