REQUEST THE WHITE HOUSE TO INVITE PRESIDENT POROSHENKO

Print PDF

Ukraine has been in the midst of wide-scale attacks since March 2014 when Russian Federation forces forcibly overtook the Crimean Peninsula and have subsequently waged a hybrid war in eastern Ukraine.  The security and stability of the entire Central and East European region is at stake unless immediate action is taken by the United States, NATO, and the European Union to resolve the constant threat to Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Support from the United States is crucial in transforming Ukraine into a secure, vibrant democracy that is fully integrated into Euro-Atlantic structures.  The acknowledgement of Ukraine’s reform achievements and the existing strategic partnership between the two countries should be manifested by extending an invitation to President Poroshenko to visit Washington, DC.   Below, please find a letter to the White House requesting President Trump invite the President of Ukraine for an immediate visit.  Additionally, you can submit your letter online at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/submit-questions-and-comments

Sample Letter

The President

The White House

Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

As an American of Ukrainian descent, I was proud to watch the people of Ukraine dedicate themselves to democratic values during the Revolution of Dignity several years ago.  Unfortunately, since that time, Ukraine has withstood the onslaught of Russian aggression waged upon its borders in the form of cyberattacks, outright invasion of sovereign territory, and an unrelenting informational disinformation campaign.

The United States, as a strategic partner of Ukraine, ought to acknowledge Ukraine’s recent sacrifices by inviting President Petro Poroshenko to Washington, DC before your eventual meeting with Vladimir Putin.  Such an acknowledgment would send strong signals to the Ukrainian people about the values of partnership with democratic nations such as ours.  Ukraine needs the assistance of the United States to transcend that country into a viable nation within the community of democracies.  A visit by President Poroshenko would manifest such a resolve.

 

Sincerely,
