Ukrainian World Congress condemns the shooting down of a Malaysian passenger airliner by Russia-backed terrorists

The Ukrainian World Congress (
UWC) expresses condolences to the families and friends of the victims travelling on a Malaysian passenger airliner from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was shot down by Russia-backed terrorists. The flight was carrying 295 passengers from various countries.
This blatant act of horrific magnitude and inhumaneness once again confirms the serious threat to global peace and security posed by Russia-backed terrorists in Eastern Ukraine.
Today, the world has learned that, despite yesterday’s announcements of further sanctions by the United States and the European Union, Russia brazenly continues to escalate its aggression and destabilize the situation in Ukraine.

Priority Issues
Ukrainian World Congress urges France to refuse to sell Mistral navy ships to Russia

The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) urges France to demonstrate its understanding of the far-reaching implications of the crisis in Ukraine by terminating its agreement to sell Mistral-class assault ships to Russia, officially recognized by the international community as a military aggressor and occupier.
The Mistral is a powerful military ship that can transport up to 16 helicopters, 4 landing craft, 60 armed vehicles and 700 troops.
The United States and the European Union, with their further sanctions of 16 July 2014, sent Russia a clear message on the consequences of violating international commitments and escalating its brutal aggression in Ukraine. Russia immediately threatened sanctions of its own.

Ukrainians around the world
Ukrainian World Congress calls upon G20 Trade Ministers to call for targeted sector-specific sanctions against Russia

Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) President Eugene Czolij sent an open letter to G20 Trade Ministers meeting in Sydney, Australia on 19 July 2014 urging them to:
a)  condemn the ongoing military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine as a violation of international law and fundamental human rights; and
b) call for targeted sector-specific sanctions (third level sanctions) against Russia in response to its illegal annexation of Crimea and unabated destabilization of Eastern Ukraine.
Despite condemning evidence in support of the fact that the pro-Russian terrorists fronting the conflict in Eastern Ukraine are materially and financially backed by the Russian Federation, various government and private entities continue to fuel the Russian economy.
