Nadiya Savchenko's mother and Marianna ZajacAn informative meeting featuring Nadiya Savchenko’s lawyer Mark Feygin and special guest – Nadiya Savchenko’s mother, Mrs.Maria Savchenko was held at the Ukrainian Museum in NYC on April 20th, organized by the UNWLA.

Mark Feygin spoke about Nadiya’s current situation.

Nadiya’s birthday on May 11th, is a target date for the defense team.  The attorneys request that, on this specific day, the diaspora disseminate information about her imprisonment .  Mr Feygin suggests contacting President Obama and US Secretary of State John Kerry as well as other politicians to ask them to support Nadiya’s release.

Mrs Savchenko spoke emotionally about her daughter. Listening to this humble woman describe the horrors of her daughters plight , as well as her unbroken  bravery was very touching for the whole audience. She shared many personal stories of Nadiya, stories underscoring Nadiya’s patriotism and bravery.

UNWLA President Marianna Zajac gifted Mrs Savchenko four issues of the UNWLA magazine-“Our Life” – the issues which featured articles on Nadiya , Nadiya’s personal letter to the UNWLA and her own artwork.

In September of 2014, at the annual meeting of the UNWLA National Board, newly elected Board members discussed their vision for our organization and fine-tuned our mission statement: “Uniting women of Ukrainian descent and affiliation in service, friendship, and dedication in order to promote and develop educational and cultural efforts as well as humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians worldwide.” The UNWLA’s mission has remained steadfast throughout its history; however, the newest members of the Board were able to introduce their own spirit into this statement.
