Following two phone calls between Presidents Biden and Zelenskyy about the Kremlin’s forces on Ukraine’s borders, the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA) penned a letter to President Biden thanking him for his support of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, sovereignty, and independence. “The Ukrainian American community looks to your Administration to continue publicly supporting Ukraine’s efforts towards Euro-Atlantic integration, most importantly its membership within the NATO alliance, while simultaneously providing Ukraine with the means necessary to defend its territorial integrity and sovereignty,” write UCCA President and Executive Vice President, respectively.
The letter was delivered electronically to the White House and calls upon the Executive Branch to “supply defensive military weaponry and equipment to Ukraine to ensure a strong deterrent against current and future Russian maneuvers.” Other deterrence measures raised by UCCA include bolstering and fully implementing already-existing sanctions laws against Russia for its aggressive actions, sanctioning the NordStream2 political pipeline before it becomes operational, and neutralizing Russia’s disinformation campaign through robust media-centric programs. Being without an American envoy in Ukraine for the past two years, the letter also underscores the need for enhanced diplomatic relations with Ukraine by nominating an American ambassador in Kyiv.
As in previous correspondence with the White House, UCCA has once again requested to meet with President Biden and other high-ranking Administration officials to discuss matters of concern regarding Ukraine. A meeting with then-Vice President Biden and representatives of the Ukrainian community was held in February 2014 during the height of the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine.
Inasmuch as Ukraine will be the foremost topic of discussion in high-level discussions between U.S. and Kremlin officials next week in Europe, both the Central and East European Coalition in the United States, which coordinates the efforts of national ethnic organizations representing nearly 20 million Americans, and the Joint Baltic American National Committee issued letters of their own in "steadfast support for Ukraine."
On December 22, the Polish American Congress wrote to President Biden in voicing their strong opposition to Russia's proposals "as deeply inimical to the ideas of democracy, sovereignty, and freedom."
