The letter below was sent by the Illinois Division of the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America to the entire Illinois delegation in the U.S. Congress – 18 members of the House of Representatives and two senators. The November 19 letter was signed by: Ihor Diaczun, president; Marta Farion, Pavlo Bandriwsky and Dr. Maria Korkatsch-Groszko, vice-presidents. The UCCA Illinois encourages all branches of the UCCA and all Ukrainian Americans to use this letter as a model for their own letter writing drives to encourage members of Congress of both political parties to continue their support of Ukraine.
On behalf of the Ukrainian American community in the state of Illinois, we want to thank you for your support of Ukraine and we appeal for your continued bipartisan support. The current depiction of Ukraine as a corrupt country is of great concern to us, as it does not present the full picture.
