On the behalf of Ukrainian People I am writing to the Governments of the United Kingdom, USA – as signatories of the Budapest Memorandum to defend the sovereignty of Ukraine in case of a military intervention into Ukraine signed on December 5h, 1994.
According to the paragraph 1. of the above mentioned Memorandum and the principals of the OSCE, the United Kingdom and the United States of America are obligated to recognize and protect the independence, sovereignty and the current borders of Ukraine. In a case of a situation that triggers these obligations accordingly to the paragraph 6. Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States of America need to implement the necessary consultations and actions.
Russia’s today’s actions bluntly put the sovereignty and integrity of Ukraine under a threat and also violate the terms of the Memorandum. Therefore the people of Ukraine is requesting the signatories of the Memorandum to take their agreed responsibilities accordingly to the international law.
on behalf of people of Ukraine
