ACTION ITEM - URGE PRESIDENT OBAMA TO VISIT UKRAINE

Print PDF

Following the illegitimate “referendum” in Crimea, Ukraine over the weekend, the Obama Administration acted quickly to enforce visa restrictions and asset freezes of Russian government officials for their involvement in the Crimean invasion.  President Obama also mentioned that Vice President Biden is traveling to Europe to meet our European allies, while the President will travel to The Hague next week to participate in the Nuclear Security Summit.

The Ukrainian National Information Service (UNIS) recommends that while President Obama is in Europe he visit Ukraine to show support for its sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence. Requests may be e-mailed directly through the White House website at:   http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/submit-questions-and-comments

Should you have any questions, please contact the UNIS office at (202) 547-0018 or at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

 

SAMPLE LETTER

 

The President

The White House

Washington, D.C. 20500

 

Dear Mr. President:

 

The invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces and the so-called “referendum” in Crimea goes against all international principles, norms, and covenants. As one of the guarantors of Ukraine’s independence and territorial integrity per the Budapest Memorandum of 1994, the United States must stand with the people of Ukraine as that country defends its independence from foreign aggressors.

Mr. President, while you are in Europe to attend the Nuclear Security Summit I urge you to travel to Ukraine to support that country’s sovereignty.  Your presence would strengthen and solidify Ukraine’s transformation from a kleptocracy to a government representative of all its citizens.

Sincerely,

UCCA DOES NOT RECOGNIZE “REFERENDUM” IN CRIMEA

Print PDF

The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), the representative organization for the over one million Americans of Ukrainian descent, does not recognize the March 16, 2014 plebiscite in Crimea.  As this so-called “referendum” was unconstitutional as per the Constitution of Ukraine and in direct violation of international law, there can be no consideration of alleged “results”.

Considering the massive presence of foreign military and paramilitary forces, it must be acknowledged that individuals were made to participate in the polling under duress after the invasion of Ukraine’s territory by the armed forces of the Russian Federation.
