UCCA Mourns the Death of Scholar Robert Conquest

Друк PDF

The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA) deeply mourns the loss of acclaimed historian, academic and author Robert Conquest, who passed away on Monday, August 3, 2015, at the august age of 98. As an outstanding scholar he is credited by many as being the first to expose the true horrors of Soviet communism, particularly under the totalitarian regime of Josef Stalin.  He is also celebrated, particularly by Ukrainians around the world, as a pioneer of truth for his seminal work “Harvest of Sorrow; Soviet Collectivization and the Terror-Famine”, a groundbreaking study which authentically documents one of the darkest chapters in Ukraine’s history - the Holodmor – Ukraine’s Famine Genocide of 1932-1933.  Sadly, Mr. Conquest passed away only a day before the long-awaited sculpture dedicated to the victims of the Holodomor - the Ukrainian Holodomor Memorial - was installed in Washington, DC. We believe he would have been proud to see this monument dedicated to the millions of victims for whom he spoke so valiantly.

The UCCA is grateful to Mr. Conquest for his many years of research and study, but most particularly for serving as a harbinger of truth for the millions of innocent victims of the Holodomor, when few other non-Ukrainians would dare to speak the facts. Mr. Conquest – we thank you and we honor you for your enormous contribution to history and to justice. May the Lord grant you eternal rest.

UCCA Attends 2nd World Congress of Crimean Tatars in Ankara, Turkey

Друк PDF

Below is the statement delivered by UCCA Executive Board Member, Andrij Dobriansky, at the Congress:

 

Ankara, Turkey (UCCA) – On August 1-2, 2015, the 2nd World Congress of Crimean Tatars gathered in Ankara, Turkey. Sadly, instead of marking a joyous celebration, this historic occasion was overshadowed by the current Russian occupation of the indigenous Tatar homeland - Crimea.

Shortly after masked gunmen stormed the Supreme Council of Crimea in a pre-dawn raid, the world awoke to the reality that the world’s largest country, Russia, which possesses the largest known number of nuclear warheads, had yet again militarily invaded a sovereign territory. Russia not only blatantly violated the UN Charter with its actions in February of 2014, but also the Helsinki Final Act, the 1994 Budapest Memorandum, and at least 2 bilateral agreements between Russia and Ukraine, not least of which was the so-called “Friendship Treaty.”

17 липня: День жалоби Згадуючи трагедію Малайзійських авіяліній рейсу 17

Друк PDF

17-го липня 2015 р. відзначаємо 1-шу річницю трагічної аварії Малайзійських авіяліній рейсу 17, в результаті якої загинуло всіх 298 пасажирів і членів залоги. Боїнґ 777-200ER, міжнародний пасажирський рейс за маршрутом з Амстердаму до Куала-Лумпурі, був збитий про-російськими терористами ракетою «земля-повітря» під час лету над окупованою Донецькою областю в Україні. Зразу ж після аварії, російський полковник Ігор Гіркін, провідник т. зв.  сепаратистів Донбасу, взяв на себе відповідальність і хвалився в соціяльних медіа про збиття українського МN26 військового літака. Однак, як тільки стало ясно, що рейс MH17 був цивільним літаком, терористи заперечували будь-яку причетність і інформація в інтернеті була знесена. Докази однак, вказують на те, що рейс MH17 був збитий про-російськими терористами.
