APPEAL to national organizations of Atlantic Treaty Association (ATA) from NATO-Ukraine Civic League and Atlantic Council of Ukraine

to national organizations of Atlantic Treaty Association (ATA)
from NATO-Ukraine Civic League and Atlantic Council of Ukraine
(Associated member of the ATA since 1995)

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We take this opportunity to express our respect to the ATA Council Meeting`s participants and their esteemed organizations!
We use this opportunity to draw your attention to the most dangerous challenges facing the very existence, independence and the territorial integrity of Ukraine but also to the Principles and Values on which the current security system works.

The Ukrainian people have been on the verge of physical and mental exhaustion from the immense pressure of war-related hardships since the beginning of Russia's war against Ukraine in February 2014. Especially great burden fell on the shoulders of women, children and pensioners who remained on the territory occupied by Russian-terrorist forces.

As it is stated in the report of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the number of refugees from the Donbas and Crimea exceeds 1.9 mln people. 1.2 mln. of them moved to other regions of the country. Over 700 thousand people went abroad. More than 6.400 thousand civilians (among them 68 children) were killed in the war that Putin triggered off.

After signing of the so-called the Minsk II truce agreement, Russian-backed militants have continued to shell the positions of Ukrainian troops and civilian targets, leaving 83 Ukrainian soldiers killed and 400 wounded.

16 Ukrainian doctors were killed and more than 60 medics were wounded in this war.
Every day the Ukrainian society is seeing tears of family members who lost their beloved ones. So, Ukrainians hope that the deployment of international missions will help to stop the war. Placing its hopes on the ATA activities, the Euro-Atlantic community is expecting a consistent and professional assessment of the situation in eastern Donbass. However, the principled stand of such international NGOs as the Atlantic Treaty Association will facilitate the adoption of adequate and objective decisions by the UN, NATO, EU and individual states, and such decisions, translated into action, can precipitate the end of war and put an end to the suffering of Ukrainian citizens.

The capture of the town of Debaltseve on February 18, 2015 was the very first violation of the Minsk Agreement. On the 3rd of June the militants launched their offensive on the town of Marinka. Obviously, that the Minsk II has failed. It was clear even after Debaltseve.
There is the conflict, but there is no solution to it...

Any demonstration of inconsistency or indecisiveness on the part of the West will bring about the transformation of Russia into the greatest geopolitical problem of the XXI century. To prevent that, it is necessary that sanctions against Russia are kept until a complete restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine, which is equivalent to the full restoration of the nuclear non-proliferation regime.

The aggression against Ukraine is a determining factor for the future of the European security. The defeat of Ukraine will surely step up instability in Eastern Europe, increase the Kremlins appetite, and decrease the possibility of changes in Russia itself.

Russias hybrid war was difficult to respond quickly because it employed a whole set of subversive tactics. During its initial stage it was too early to define the threats and counter them because they were not clearly demonstrated. People were brainwashed by Russian propaganda and spread separatist sentiments. Our top commanding officers were caught off-guard by swift actions of the Russian regular and irregular forces. The ultimate goal of Putins adventure in Ukraine was not clear at that time. Moreover, there was hope for a dialogue and political solution. There also was hope for a resolute support from our allies. After the precious time had been wasted, it was too late to put up a fierce resistance.

Today it is too early to respond, but tomorrow is too late that is the essence of a hybrid war...
It is not just the armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine that we are witnessing these days. It is a war between two civilizations. The Kremlin is afraid of successful, strong and democratic Ukraine, because the Russian totalitarian government perceives democracy as a threat, which has already reached the borders of Russia. The fact that Russia is fighting against Ukraine is a threat to European civilization.

In our opinion, the Ukrainian-Russian conflict is largely a conflict between the cultural successors to Kievan Rus and Golden Horde.
We appeal to you to promote further political and public support our country and our people in the struggle for independence from the Russian-terrorist occupants and restoration of the Ukrainian state borders.

For this end it is important to act in accordance with the following 3 directions.

1. Continue to keep economic sanctions on Russia. Economic sanctions are a peaceful way of solving the problem. When sanctions are kept Ukrainian soldiers and civilians stay alive. The stronger the sanctions the shorter the period they are imposed. After the war it will be possible and necessary to restore relationships with new Russian authorities. However, for a new Russia to come, there must be a real pressure on the economy of Putin's Russia. The Russians will abandon their hostile behaviour only under mounting pressure from the West.

2. It is important to support Ukraine economically. It is difficult for a war-torn country to rebuild, let alone to boost its economy. War consumes a lot of efforts and attention. Reforms are carried out, but it takes time for the effect to come. Putin hopes that Ukraine will fall sooner than Russia, with the war raging on its territory. It is necessary to support Ukraine.

3. It is important to supply both non-lethal and lethal weapons to Ukraine. The Ukrainian soldiers cannot defend the European values and European civilization with their bare hands. Well-armed Ukrainian units are the deterrence factor on the tactical and strategic levels. The Russian generals will think twice before launching an attack on well-armed Ukrainian soldiers. Russia is still pouring its advanced weapons and military equipment into Eastern Ukraine, which it exploits as a testing ground. Russian artillery cadets pass practical tests, shelling the positions of Ukrainian troops from the Russian territory.

It is important to defend Ukraine, which is a European state due to its historical and cultural background, and the system of values.
Civil society of Ukraine, which is now represented by soldiers and volunteer at the forefront struggling to protect our independence and European choice, expects support from the Euro-Atlantic civil society. Each your action in support of Ukraine is highly significant for us and it also serves as evidence proving that we are not alone in this fight.

Lets join our efforts to defend our homeland today, so you save yourselves the trouble of defending your homeland tomorrow.

Open Letter from NATO-Ukraine Civic League to the U.S. Congress

Open Letter
from NATO-Ukraine Civic League
to the U.S. Congress

Dear Speaker Boehner, Senator Reid, Senator McConnell and Representative Pelosi,

Ukraine is at the forefront of the struggle not only for its own independence but for independence and freedom of Europe and the whole Euro-Atlantic community. It is determined by history. The United States of America, as any other country in the world, knows and understands that because the United States proved to be the most resolute champion of freedom, democracy and human rights in the most decisive moments in world history.

The United States Congress, as the highest representative of the will and aspirations of Americans, has always been steadfast champion of freedom, security and justice in the whole world. Now the history is urging the U.S. Congress again to act decisively and uncompromisingly in circumstances when the darkest forces of history and, above all, tyrannical Putin regime in Russia challenged the whole Euro-Atlantic family. Ukraine rose to the challenge.

The Honourable members of the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States Congress! NATO-Ukraine Civic League expresses its sincere gratitude to you for the full and unconditional support of the Ukrainian people in their staunch desire to be free, democratic state, a full-fledged member of the European and Euro-Atlantic communities.

Being aware of modern development and guided by its programmatic principles and beliefs, respecting the principles of independence, sovereignty and stability of Ukraine, NATO-Ukraine Civic League urges you, the Honourable representatives of the American people in Congress, to take a decision on the fastest final adoption of the following bills: Russian Aggression Prevention Act of 2014 and Security Guarantees for Ukraine Act to give Ukraine a status of the United States strategic ally, thereby stopping the aggressor and powerfully defending Ukraine, Europe and the United States.

We also call on Congress to make every possible effort for the fastest decision on inviting Ukraine to join the Alliance as a full-fledged member at the Summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in the UK in September 2014.

Sincerely yours,
NATO-Ukraine Civic League
August 2014
Kyiv, Ukraine

Statement of the NATO-Ukraine Commission

As we meet today, Ukraines sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence continue to be violated by Russia. Despite Russias denials, Russian armed forces are engaged in direct military operations in Ukraine; Russia continues to supply weapons to militants in eastern Ukraine; and it maintains thousands of combat-ready troops on its border with Ukraine. These developments undermine the security of Ukraine and have serious implications for the stability and security of the entire Euro-Atlantic area.

We, the Heads of State and Government of the NATO-Ukraine Commission, stand united in our support of Ukraines sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders.

We strongly condemn Russias illegal and illegitimate self-declared annexation of Crimea and its continued and deliberate destabilization of eastern Ukraine in violation of international law. We call on Russia to reverse its self-declared annexation of Crimea, which we do not and will not recognise. Russia must end its support for militants in eastern Ukraine, withdraw its troops and stop its military activities along and across the Ukrainian border, respect the rights of the local population, including the native Crimean Tatars, and refrain from further aggressive actions against Ukraine. Allies consider any unilateral Russian military or subversive action inside Ukraine, under any pretext, including humanitarian, as a blatant violation of international law.

Statement From the NATO-Ukraine Civic League In regards to a NATO Referendum in Ukraine

The NATO-Ukraine Civic League declares that a referendum on Ukraines accession to NATO is unsuitable at this time, because this contradicts Ukrainian law, and does not respond to the Law About National Security Basis and threatens the realizations of Ukraines national interests.

The question of conducting an all-Ukrainian referendum should be defined by the Constitution, but the Constitutional Court does not rule about the legality of changes to the present Constitution. During the current political crisis conducting a referendum regarding Ukraines accession to NATO would not be the answer. A referendum could be initiated by not only the political powers inside the country but also the exterior powers, for the realization of well-known imperial interests, referring to the stereotypes about NATO, which are consequences of not only Soviet propaganda but also political speculations and disorientations of the population during the latest election campaigns. Thus, the statement about the referendum concerning Ukraines accession into NATO is a political speculation.

Since the agreement on a National Unity Universal, a NATO referendum should be conducted after Ukraine has done all its necessary procedures in which the executive powers would initiate the drive to join the Membership Action Plan. A referendum must not be conducted because it is irresponsible to make ignorant citizens decide on strategic questions concerning national security.

For the 10 new members of NATO, in only two countries was there a national referendum concerning NATO membership. The experience of these countries, this type of referendum was conducted exclusively after receiving a NATO invitation of membership. Conducting a referendum about any such invitation is a non-logical and arrogant step.

Because of the absence of priorities and understandings of protection of national interests, state government is avoiding its responsibility to the national state security and transfers its responsibility of very difficult questions dealing with civilian security.

In the condition of domination in the Ukrainian media information area with precisely identified anti-Ukrainian position, for citizens it is not easy to decide about questions which are complicated and extensive.

Ukrainian society must immediately understand that without NATO membership, as the most effective security system, the existent of the Ukrainian state will still remain under threat.

Kyiv, 12 March 2007

Statement From the NATO-Ukraine Civic League Dealing with the Acceptance of Ukraine in the Membership Action Plan

The North-Atlantic Treaty Organization is the most effective collective security organization in history, which on 4 April will celebrate its 58th anniversary. One of the key principles for a smooth transformation process of the Alliance is the question concerning implementation of new Strategic Concepts and political expansion, which personify the transition from an organization that keeps political stability to one that is a functioning security and safety Alliance.

As Ukraine draws closer to the 10 year anniversary of the NATO-Ukraine Charter, which was signed on 9 July 1997 in Madrid, Spain, the realization that a coordinated and forecasted activity plan dealing with Ukraines security and defense policy does not exist, is pushing Ukraine into a strategic vacuum which brings with it a national security threat.

Ukrainian membership in NATO means reinforcing Ukraines security.

Present day Ukraine must take part in finding a strategic consensus within the Euro-Atlantic partnership, to begin extensive consultations regarding global, political and efficient coordination, and separating the roles and responsibility within the trans-Atlantic area.

It stands to reason, that interior concerns for the security of Ukraine are far more significant and clear then the exterior. Therefore, membership within the Alliance is extra-ordinarily important. Cooperation and membership in the Alliance means an orientation towards European values; it gives countries the impulsive urge to open their political systems, form a real market economy, expand democracy and strengthen human rights, increase social guarantees and achieve a European political culture along with a higher living standards.

NATO-Ukraine Civic League

  • to realize strategic risks, which bring together Ukrainian policies dealing with Ukrainian citizens and Euro-Atlantic partners;
  • underlining the necessity of taking into consideration the modern and possible threats from international terrorism, the threat from weapons of mass destruction, provocation from unstable ecological problems,--

there is a call for an active cooperation of Ukraine with NATO within the measures of Ukraines obligations to the Alliance and the possible acceptance of Ukraine within the Membership Action Plan during the July visit of NATO-Ukraine Commission.

NATO-Ukraine Partnership Network for Civil Society Expertise Development
General Provisions

Aims of the Partnership Network

The major aims of the Partnership Network are as follows:

  • To strengthen interaction between groups of the society and security experts from Ukraine and Allied countries in the context of developing strong civil position with regards Ukraines national policy of Euro-Atlantic integration, which includes future NATO membership;
  • To better inform Ukrainian people about the modern model of collective security and Ukraines role in its strengthening by means of open exchanges of views and ideas on the civil society role in development and implementation of national security and defense policy;
  • To strengthen democratic civilian control over security and defense sector reform in Ukraine by means of better public involvement into the process.

  • Transparency of activities of the Partnership Network members;
  • Recognition of a special role of representatives of Ukrainian Armed Forces, other security services, defense industry and ex-military in the processes of informing society;
  • Direct contacts with population.

Participation of NGOs from NATO member-states in development and operations of the Network is important because they have experience in organizing and holding information activities, as well as participation of Ukrainians living in other countries.

Objectives of the Partnership Network

  • To disseminate objective and non-biased information about modern European system of collective security, role and place of NATO in this system and cooperation of NATO partner-states with the Alliance.
  • To inform about benefits and potential challenges related to Ukraines participation in Euro-Atlantic system of collective security.
  • To restore relations of partnership and understanding between security institutions of the states and civil society, in particular, by means of involvement into practical cooperation of Public Colleges (Councils) set up under the auspices of Ministries and Agencies of the Ukrainian security and defense sector, and Officers Councils at Ukrainian Armed Forces.
  • To upgrade legal and regulatory framework in the area of improving interaction between public authorities and civil society institutions, in particular, by means of cooperation with relevant Parliamentary Committees.
  • To set up a system of monitoring and analysis of public opinion about Euro-Atlantic cooperation.

  • Support by NGOs from NATO member-states to information projects in Ukraine aimed at raising awareness of civil society of a need and usefulness of security sector reform.

Membership in the Partnership Network

The official contact point of the Network among Ukrainian state institutions under the aegis of the NATO-Ukraine Joint Working Group on Defense Reform (JWG DR) is the National Centre for Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine (NCEAIU).

The leading NGO, which is going to play an active role in founding the Network and its operations among representatives of different social groups of civil society, is a Civic League Ukraine-NATO.

Accession of NGOs from NATO member-states to the Partnership Network and setting up cooperation with NCEAIU and Civic League Ukraine-NATO should be supported by the NATO Information and Documentation Center in Ukraine (NIDC), NATO Liaison Office in Ukraine and Allied Embassies to Ukraine.

NGOs from member-states, which are partners and members of the Partnership Network should provide advisory, methodological, informational, logistical and financial support to specific activities included into the Partnership Network Action Program.

The Network operates in close cooperation with NIDC making use of the whole set of information programs on defense and security issues and civilian control over security sector.

NATO Liaison Office in Ukraine will provide information and analytical support to practical aspects of defense and security sector reforms in Ukraine on the basis of NATO member-states experience.
