My dear Ukrainian Community,
Soon we will be commemorating the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution of Ukraine – the principal document that defines the country’s political system, outlines the basic rights and freedoms of Ukrainians, regulates the most important public relations and affirms the democratic principles of the country’s development.
Two years ago Ukraine face unbelievable aggression and violating the norms of international law, which no one could imagine in 21 st.
Today Russian occupation of the Crimean peninsula continue to pose direct threats to not only the norms and standards of the international law. For the second time in modern history, Crimean Tatars were deported. Almost 20,000 Crimean Tatars left their native land and those still residing in Crimea are subject to politically motivated suppressions. 11 Ukrainian citizens are illegally detained in Russia, 7 of whom have already been imprisoned.
