[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.

Yours sincerely,

Russia’s war against Ukraine has resulted in over 14,000 deaths, a quarter of which are civilians, 30,000 wounded, and over 1.5 million internally displaced persons. This war is the longest military conflict in Europe since World War II, and its resolution will undoubtedly impact the future of peace in Europe.

It is the position of the UWC that the territorial integrity of Ukraine must be fully restored. This involves the de-occupation by the Russian Federation of Crimea and parts of the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, and the establishment of peace and security on sovereign Ukrainian territory. Specifically, the UWC calls for:
