UWC strongly urges the international community to immediately take concrete measures in reaction to the invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops
Оn 28 August 2014 the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko made a statement about the sharp aggravation of the situation in Donetsk region, particularly in Amvrosiivka and Starobeshevo, and the fact that Russian troops were brought into Ukraine.
As a result, the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) strongly urges the international community, including NATO, the United Nations, the G7 and the European Union, to immediately react to this invasion of Ukraine by Russian troops by providing Ukraine with military and technical aid, and freezing Russia`s assets and stopping Russia`s banking transactions in the G7 countries and EU member countries until Russia removes its troops from Ukraine.
“The Ukrainian World Congress calls upon the international community to concretely help Ukraine defend its territorial integrity,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij. “Only the immediate intervention by the international community can stop the brazen threat by Russia to peace and stability in Europe.”
