Ukrainian World Congress welcomes new sanctions targeting Russian economy
The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) welcomes the new sanctions imposed on 29 July 2014 against specific sectors of the Russian economy as a positive development in the campaign to end Russia’s military intervention and aggression against Ukraine.
The United States, the European Union and Canada moved forward in a coordinated manner by announcing specific sanctions targeting Russia’s energy, arms and finance sectors.
Among the targets of the new measures are Russia’s largest banks, a Russian-state owned defense technology firm and the oil sector. The sanctions will curtail Russian access to U.S., EU and Canadian capital markets.
“This is a choice that Russia, and President Putin in particular, has made,” U.S. President Barack Obama stated following the announcement, adding that “Today, Russia is once again isolating itself from the international community, setting back decades of genuine progress.”

On 24 July 2014 Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) President Eugene Czolij issued an appeal to the Honourable Tony Abbott, Prime Minister of Australia and current G20 President, calling for immediate necessary measures to deal with Russia-backed terrorism.
Eugene Czolij offered condolences following the tragic deaths of some 30 Australian citizens and residents on Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17.
The downing of the passenger airliner that killed 298 people from various countries should be a chilling warning to the international community of the consequences of tolerating Russia-backed terrorism.
