The Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations (AFUO) strongly condemns the current abhorrent wave of terror and violence being applied to the Ukrainian European supporters in Ukraine.
Over past days bloodied demonstrations of reprisals against , journalists, civil society activists, including Tatiana CHORNOVOL and Dmytro PYLYPETS convincingly argue that the Ukrainian Government regime and their ‘foot soldiers’ have moved into a new phase of fear tactics.
The AFUO calls on the Australian Government to immediately express its concern and condemn these actions with a strong message – Stop the violence – The World is Watching You!
The AFUO also calls on all Ukrainians in Australia to protest and continue in joining with the Euromaidan in action and spirit.
The AFUO urges the international community to pay attention to human rights violations in Ukraine and calls on the Australian other international Governments to impose heavy sanctions against politicians, individuals and organisations identified as being behind or directly involved in the bloodshed and reprisals against peaceful protesters.
