UWC Greetings on Ukraine’s Independence Day
On behalf of the Ukrainian World Congress, I welcome all Ukrainians and friends of Ukraine on this important anniversary – the renewal of Ukraine’s independence. 30 years ago, the dream of many generations of Ukrainians came true.
The efforts of our global diaspora helped to ensure recognition of Ukraine’s independence by the international community in 1991, as well as recognition of the 2014 Revolution of Dignity. Unfortunately, today Ukraine’s independence is once again threatened by Russia’s military aggression and imperial ambitions of its leaders.
We remain committed to defending Ukraine and the Ukrainian people around the world; to building a democratic and economically strong Ukraine; and to fostering our identity as Ukrainians around the world.
The global Ukrainian community and all peace-loving people stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Ukraine in their pursuit for peace and prosperity.
Happy Independence Day! Glory to Ukraine! Glory to its Heroes.
