The Congressional Ukraine Caucus assured of its committed and unwavering support for maintaining and strengthening Ukraine’s security on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the country's independence.
“On the 30th anniversary of Ukraine’s Independence, the Congressional Ukraine Caucus joins with the Ukrainian people and diaspora in celebration,” reads the statement released by Congressional Ukraine Caucus Co-Chairs Representatives Marcy Kaptur, Mike Quigley, Brian Fitzpatrick, and Andy Harris.
The Congress members noted that the world had watched as subjugation and fear gave way to liberty and hope in 1991 – providing a beacon of light for nations and peoples still shrouded in darkness.
“The progress undertaken since then has led to a prosperity and stability that has uplifted the Ukrainian people, and charted a path toward a brighter future. While the shadow of malign influence seeks to reverse this trajectory, the Congressional Ukraine Caucus remains steadfast in its commitment to preserving and strengthening Ukrainian security, and looks forward to celebrating Independence Day with all the generations to follow,” says the statement.
As reported, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence, a blue and yellow flag was hoisted on the flagpole of the city hall of Philadelphia.
