Dear Ms. Verveer,       
With the ongoing crisis in Ukraine,  the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America, the largest and oldest organization of women of Ukrainian Heritage in America, has undertaken some immediate action initiatives – not only humanitarian aid but also by requesting our membership to rally President Obama and our US government representatives in the procurement of military aid for Ukraine.

In July, we asked our membership to speak out about Lt. Nadiya Savchenko- the highest ranking woman in Ukraine’s army - who was captured in Donetsk and kidnapped to Russia to stand trial on trumped up murder charges. Most recently, Lt. Nadiya Savchenko has been sentenced to the Serbsky Institute in Moscow, known for its human rights abuses, to undergo a ‘forensic psychiatric evaluation’.

We have written to Sen. Hillary Clinton to intercede on her behalf through her many contacts. As a member of the World Federation of Ukrainian Women’s Organizations, we are also in the process of contacting the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

With your vast experience and most recently as the Ambassador- at-Large of the Office of Global Women’s Issues in the State Department, we would appreciate any help you can give Lt. Savchenko’s cause in disseminating information about her alarming situation and securing her release.

The UNWLA is proud to include you among its membership and we are pleased to share with you that we are resubmitting your name onto our mailing list for the UNWLA’s monthly magazine, “Our Life”.

Slava Ukraini !
