At this moment in time, all of us have our eyes focused on Ukraine and its brave, heroic citizens. They are fighting the good fight, defending their freedom and their democracy. They are a shining example to all freedom-loving people.
In 2004, SLLF held an extraordinary international program with the then newly independent, democratic Republic of Ukraine. Our official host was Hon. Serhii Shevchuk, Chair of SLLF Europe and a member of the Ukrainian Parliament. US and European legislative leaders met in Kiev and Yalta and spent time with members of Ukraine’s new parliamentary leadership.
SLLF is proud to have reached out to this fledgling democracy, and now, in its time of need, we pledge our unflagging support to our friends and colleagues there and we look forward to returning to Ukraine one day.
