IMMEDIATE ADVOCACY NEEDED TO PROVIDE MILITARY ASSISTANCE TO UKRAINE AND NON-RECOGNITION OF CRIMEAN "ANNEXATION"

Друк PDF

The U.S. Congress has recessed for their election campaigning and will not resume their session until mid-November.  In the meantime, as the congressmen and senators are campaigning in their respective districts and states, it is imperative that you contact their district offices, request a meeting, and advocate passage of three congressional bills regarding military assistance to Ukraine and non-recognition of Crimea's "annexation" by Russia.  Time is of the essence...Congress will only be in session for a few weeks in November and December.  Ukraine needs assistance from the United States immediately!  Your attention to these issues is highly appreciated!

The two bills in the House of Representatives are:

* H.R.5190, the Ukraine Security Assistance Act of 2014 provides military assistance to Ukraine and designates Ukraine as a Major non-NATO Ally (MNNA).  It was introduced by Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-PA) and is co-sponsored by Reps. Marcy Kaptur and Sander Levin, co-chairs of the Congressional Ukrainian Caucus.

* H.R.5241, the Crimea Annexation Non-recognition Act prohibits the United States to recognize de juro or de facto annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation.  It was introduced by Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-VA).

The bill in the U.S. Senate is:

* S.2828, the “Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014” provides military and security assistance to Ukraine, designates it as a Major non-NARO Ally (MNNA), and imposes further sanctions on the Russian Federation.  The bill was introduced by the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sens. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Bob Corker (R-TN), respectively.

UNIS requests you contact your elected officials (Senator or Congressman) immediately and request a meeting to seek their support of H.R.5190, H.R.5241, and S.2828.  Please visit http://house.gov or http://senate.gov and find your elected official and send an electronic message requesting their support for the bills.  Briefing papers on the topics are enclosed.

Ukraine has been invaded...it needs the Ukrainian American community’s assistance!   ACT NOW!

Please distribute this information to your e-mail contacts. SPREAD THE WORD - HELP UKRAINE NOW!!
