From Maidan to Nebesna Sotnya and now the conflict in Donetsk and Luhansk we have seen tremendous bravery, spirit and courage displayed by our Ukrainian people. The community in London and the UK have been actively engaged in protests and providing aid to Ukraine. We have known for months about Russian incursions onto the territory of Ukraine. This is now an invasion and outright aggression. The Kremlin lies and continues to lie. Many politicians and commentators in the West have been proved wrong. Ukraine has not disintegrated into parts but grown stronger. Words and promises are now not enough. We demand full economic, political and sporting sanctions and the right of the Ukrainian people to defend themselves with military assistance. Stop Putin – Stop the Kremlin!
