Ukrainian World Congress calls on U.S. President
to urgently provide Ukraine with defensive military aid for the protection of its civilians from continuous terrorist acts
During recent days, as a result of continuous terrorist acts in Eastern Ukraine by militants and special forces armed by Russia, tens of innocent civilians have been killed and hundreds injured, specifically near Volnovakha, in Donetsk and Mariupol.
“The Ukrainian World Congress calls for U.S. President Barack Obama to urgently provide Ukraine with defensive military aid for the protection of its civilians and territorial integrity in accordance with the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014 and the 1994 Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) is the international coordinating body for Ukrainian communities in the diaspora representing the interests of over 20 million Ukrainians. The UWC has member organizations in 34 countries and ties with Ukrainians in 14 additional countries. Founded in 1967, the UWC was recognized in 2003 by the United Nations Economic and Social Council as a non-governmental organization (NGO) with special consultative status.
