On Aug. 24, Ukraine celebrates its 25th year of emancipation from the Soviet Union. It would seem that after so many cruel years subjected to Russian subjugation that Ukraine would indeed be free.
However, we see that Vladimir Putin has no intention of letting Ukrainians decide their fate or govern their provinces. Putin has to continue the legacy of the all-powerful Russian Empire, oppressing and dictating the future of Ukraine.
Americans of Ukrainian descent applaud President Obama and Congress for supporting Ukraine’s continued fight for freedom. Ukraine is the means to sustaining peace and stability in all of Europe. That is why it is so important to continue to help Ukraine to remain independent.
