Sommerlejr for ukrainske børn 2016

“Lastivka” vil gerne gentage sidste års sommerlejr for børn, som har mistet forældre under militær konflikt i Ukraine.
Positiv erfaring fra sidste års sommerlejr for 44 ukrainske børn i Ikast og Ålborg har inspireret os til at fortsætte vores indsats for at hjælpe flere børn, der har en svær hverdag.
Den militære konflikt i Ukraine har taget livet af tusinde mennesker og har fordrevet over 2 millioner fra deres hjem. Trods flere våbenhvile aftaler fortsætter de militære overgreb og antallet af døde og sårede vokser hver dag. Derfor kan vi ikke holde os tilbage for at hjælpe de børn, som er ramt af krigen.
Formål med vores projekt er at give børn kvalitets tid væk fra den triste hverdag.
Vi er overbevist om, at en sommerlejr er en god måde at give børnene deres glæde tilbage, nyde fællesskabet og få nye venner.
“Lastivka” planlægger at afholde sommerlejren fra den 30.07.2016 til den 13.08.2016 i København, Ålborg og Ikast for 60 børn i alderen mellem 9 og 14 år fra forskellige regioner i Ukraine.
Projektet er dannet i samarbejde med Den Ukrainske Ambassade i Danmark.
Vi beder Jer om støtte til dette projekt. Alt slags hjælp bliver modtaget med glæde, og selv det mindste bidrag kan gøre en forskel. Bidragene skal bl.a. bruges til: transport, ophold, mad, diverse oplevelser og workshops.

(Українська) (English) Urgent action regarding Russia-backed terrorism

Dear Prime Minister:

Urgent action regarding Russia-backed terrorism

We, the Ukrainian Community in Denmark and friends of Ukraine, would like to express our condolences following the tragic deaths of some 30 Australian citizens and residents on Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17.

We would like to support initiative of Ukrainian World Congress in urging you as G20 President to take the necessary measures to end President Vladimir Putin’s reign of terror that is threatening the world by calling on the G20 Leaders to immediately:

  1. impose targeted sector-specific sanctions (third level sanctions) against Russia;
  2. provide military aid to Ukraine in order to remove the menace to the international community posed by Russia-backed terrorists in Eastern Ukraine;
  3. deny Russia’s President Vladimir Putin the privilege of participating in the upcoming G20 Leaders Summit on 15 and 16 November 2014 in Brisbane, Queensland; and
  4. invite Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko to attend the G20 Leaders Summit in Australia.

If the G20 Leaders do not act promptly and decisively, Russia will be emboldened to further threaten

peace and security, not only in Ukraine, but throughout the world, bringing even more suffering and death of innocent people.

Along with the letter we add a letter from Ukrainian World Congress.

With sincerest gratitude,

Alina Protsyk

(Українська) (English) Petition to Russian Embassy

Petition to Russian Embassy
We, the Ukrainian Community in Denmark and friends of Ukraine, are writing to the Government of Russia. We are deeply upset and shocked with Russian intervention which began with annexation of Crimea in March 2014 and continued with support and organization of armed separatist-terrorist movements in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, so called “DNR” (Donetsk People Republic) and “LNR” (Luhansk People Republic) who’s main goals are separation and destabilization of Ukraine.
Activities of such groups are an integral part of “hybrid” war conducted by Russia against Ukraine which is confirmed by irrefutable evidences of involvement of Russian military and special operations personnel in organization of and participation in the separatist-terrorist movements.
There are numerous evidences of illegal supply of materials along with light and heavy weapons (including tanks, artillery, multiple rocket launchers and surface to air missile systems) from Russia to the terrorist groups.
There are documented cases of shelling of Ukrainian territory by mortars, artillery and missiles from the Russian territory.
According to National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine , on 23 July 2014, Russia has concentrated on its border with Ukraine 41000 troops, 150 tanks, 400 of armored vehicles and 500 artillery systems.
Aforementioned war activities conducted by Russia lead to numerous civilian casualties of Ukrainian citizens and citizens of other counties as it was in the case with flight MH17.
Along with military aggression against Ukraine, Russia kidnaps Ukrainian citizens on Ukrainian territory as in the case with Ukrainian pilot Nadiya Savchenko, illegally detains Ukrainian citizens as in the case with Ukrainian movie director Oleg Sentsov and Ukrainian reporter Yevgeny Agarkov.

Russia bluntly put the sovereignty and integrity of Ukraine under a threat and violates:
• provisions of the UN Charter;
• Final Act of the Conference on Security & Cooperation in Europe, 1975;
• the terms of Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, 1994;
• Agreement about Friendship, Cooperation and Partnership between Russian Federation and Ukraine, 1997.

Regarding this we are requesting Russian Government to take their agreed responsibilities accordingly to the international law and demand following:
1) Withdraw Russian armed forces from the territory of Ukraine and stop shelling Ukrainian territory;
2) Stop supplying terrorist organizations LNR and DNR with funds, materials and weapon;
3) Request terrorist organizations DNR and LNR to give up their arms;
4) Release kidnapped and detained Ukrainian citizens Nadiya Savchenko, Oleg Sentsov and Yevgeny Agarkov;
5) Stop spreading disinformation about events in Ukraine and not to interfere with the work of journalists.
With sincerest gratitude,
Alina Protsyk

Pengeindsamling til at hjælpe familierne til de dræbte demonstranter på Uafhængighedspladsen i Kiev (Ukraine) og støtte til behandling og rehabilitering af de sårede demonstranter

Den ukrainske ungdomsorganisation i Danmark “Lastivka” i marts måned i år startede en pengeindsamling, som havde til formål at hjælpe familierne til de dræbte demonstranter på Uafhængighedspladsen i Kiev (Ukraine) og støtte til behandling og rehabilitering af de sårede demonstranter i de blodige kampe som fandt sted i februar måned i Kiev. Til indsamling har der været skaffet den nødvendige tilladelse fra politiet, som gjald i 2 måneder og var forlænget i endnu en måned efterfølgende. Indsamlingen sluttede med flotte 21.327,50 kr, hvorfra 18.392,00 kr ($ 3.000,-) var overført til Euromajdan SOS konti og resten brugt til betaling for revisionsrapport  og diverse bankgebyrer. De penge der er overskud efter bankgebyr vil blive send til andet indsamling for Ukraine.  “Lastivka” takker alle, der har bidraget til denne pengeindsamling og vil i fremtiden støtte lignende initiativer.

Revoking the privilege granted to Russia of hosting the 2018 FIFA World Cup

Dear Mr. Blatter,

We, the Ukrainian Community in Denmark and friends of Ukraine, would like to support initiative of Ukrainian World Congress in urging FIFA to consider blatant disregard by Russian government  for international law, which manifests in annexation of Crimea and direct support of terrorism in Eastern Ukraine.

We would like to call upon FIFA to revoke the privilege granted to Russia of hosting the 2018 FIFA World Cup, an honour of which Russia has proven itself unworthy.

Along with the letter we add a letter from Ukrainian World Congress.

With sincerest gratitude,
