WE DON’T NEED ANOTHER RESET

Print PDF

New York (UCCA) – Almost three years after Russia’s military invasion and illegal occupation of Ukrainian territory - not a one-time violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty, but an ongoing, daily violation of international law - the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), the nation’s largest representation of Ukrainians in America, calls on the incoming 115th United States Congress and President-elect Donald Trump’s incoming administration to continue our nation’s proud tradition of bipartisan support for Ukraine. Any retreat from current sanctions levied against Russia or the military, political and economic support of Ukraine, and the United States would signal yet another “reset,” a capitulation with terrifying consequences for Ukraine, our European partners and security around the world.

Dear Members and Friends:

Following the results of the U.S. elections on November 8, the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America asks its members and supporters to aid in our continuing efforts in maintaining bipartisan support for Ukraine with our elected officials both in the final weeks of this legislative cycle as well as the coming year. As we continue to keep you abreast of our communications with Congress and the new White House administration, we ask that you review our attached statement detailing the goals we will seek to help enact with the country's new leadership as well as after significant turnover in top Congressional posts next year.

As we are all too aware, the work of Ukrainians in America and our many organizations is needed more now by our family and friends in Ukraine than in recent memory, given Russia’s latest efforts to enslave Ukraine. Only by continuing to strengthen and add to our coalition, will victory come in the form of a Ukraine, whole and free.
