Patriots of Ukraine Wordwide Movement held a protest against Russian invasion into Ukraine “Stop Putin’s War in Ukraine 3.0”. Protesters gathered in Sydney, Australia, according to the official Facebook of Patriots of Ukraine Worldwide Movement.
“Although now the events in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine are scarcely covered by world’s media, the hybrid war launched by Putin never stopped and continues to claim lives,” reads the official statement.
“The main purpose of the action is to draw public attention to the Russian aggression in Ukraine, to show the importance of unity and solidarity with Ukraine, as well as to urge the world to increase pressure on Russia to restore territorial integrity and peace in our country,” state the participants.
Patriots of Ukraine Wordwide Movement appeal with open letters to the leaders of the international community, EU, EP and OSCE for help in providing specific steps to stop Russian aggression towards Ukraine:
1. To fully withdraw all foreign occupation armed groups, military equipment and mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine including Crimea under the supervision of the OSCE. To disarm all illegal groups. To restore full control of the state border by Ukraine in the whole conflict area, in accordance with Articles 9-10 of Minsk Peace Treaty from 12.02.2015 and the UN General Assembly Resolution from 16.11.2016.
2. To increase the OSCE observation mission to 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and allow it to the part of the Ukrainian-Russian border temporarily not controlled by Ukraine, because Russian-separatist forces stop attacks only when the OSCE observers are present at the front.
3. To immediately release all hostages and illegally detained persons, who are detained on politically motivated and trumped up charges – according to Article 6 of Minsk Peace Treaty from 12.02.2015.
4. To liberate illegally annexed territories of Crimea and Sevastopol that are temporary occupied by country-aggressor Russia, in accordance with the UN General Assembly Resolution from 16.11.2016.
