Dear Friends and Supporters of Maidan
I wish to thank you for your interest in and support of Ukraine over the last three months. Ukraine is at a crossroads, and support from the Diaspora has never been more important. Our work must continue until there is a true democratic civil society in Ukraine.
The situation in Ukraine since the 2012 Parliamentary Elections has been horrendous by any standard. When we highlighted the main issues at CUF’s “Ukraine at the Crossroads” Conference in Ottawa in March 2012, we had no idea that things would get so much worse.
