An international protest of Ukrainian communities in Europe, Canada, and USA is planned to take place on 10 June 2016. There are 10 cities in EU participating so far, but it is planned that other cities and countries will join.
Appeasement of Russia is a remnant of old thinking. It was a dismal failure in the past because it absorbed energies, lives and economics for a half century. Vladimir Putin and bellicose Russia cannot be appeased. Concessions will simply whet their appetite. A weakened Russia, however, can be affected. Russia has to be confronted, neutralized and ultimately dragged or welcomed into the civilized world.
On the eve of the Dutch national referendum on the EU-Ukraine Association and Free Trade Agreement, we kindly ask you to use all your moral authority and institutional weight to support a YES vote. Your YES will determine the fate of 45 million people in Ukraine, the EU’s largest neighbor, for years to come.
Those people will be able to negotiate peace with neighbours. In occupied territories, in Russia. Using the values and interests, not the conflicts and differences, as negotiation starting points.

It is very important from the peacebuilding point of view. When we are reporting on facts, we cannot allow for such manipulation as Andre and have demonstrated you using this is a very typical news piece about the Pope and Putin. There are lots more cases like this in Ukraine-Russia conflict and other conflicts obviously. If we stick with facts, we will win the war for objective reporting. We will sanitize the media and diminish the level of fear and panic. I think it is very important.
It would be a stain on our honor to stand by and do nothing while a sovereign nation in the heart of Europe is torn apart by Russia’s imperial ambitions.
At the beginning of last week Secretary Kerry stated that President Obama will shortly make up his mind on whether to deliver defensive aid to the Ukrainians. The clock continues to tick.
