UWC troubled by latest reports of possible threats to EuroMaidan and undue pressure on citizens of Ukraine




The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) is troubled by news reports out of Ukraine that are forewarning of a new assault on peaceful EuroMaidan protesters in Kyiv. This could take the form of a staged provocation designed to create mass chaos in Kyiv and the perception of an East‑West divide.

 


In addition, individuals have informed the UWC that they are being pressured to travel to Kyiv this weekend to participate in actions in support of Ukraine’s governing authorities under threat of employment termination.

 


“The UWC is appealing to Ukraine’s governing authorities to prevent any assaults on Kyiv’s EuroMaidan, immediately cease all pressure on Ukrainian citizens to participate in any actions against their will and respect the fundamental right to freedom of expression,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
