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 President calls upon G20 President to take necessary measures to deal with Russia-backed terrorism
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 and unabashed violations of the territorial integrity of an independent country.

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.
