“There will be no sustainable peace without justice…”

New Pathway – Ukrainian News.

The Canada-Ukraine Foundation will be hosting a Canadian speaking tour for Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Oleksandra Matviichuk, who will be in Canada from June 3 to 9.

Speaking tour will raise awareness of war crimes in Ukraine perpetrated by the Russian Federation, and will underscore the plight of the 20,000+ Ukrainian children abducted by the Kremlin.

Oleksandra Matviichuk and her organization, the Center for Civil Liberties, have been documenting Russian war crimes in Ukraine for ten years. In 2014, the Center was the first human rights organization in the world to send its own mobile teams to document war crimes in the Crimea, Donetsk, and Luhansk regions. CCL continues to do so in all areas where Russian troops are committing crimes. Oleksandra’s team has been very active in documenting war crimes in the town of Bucha, where they have reported over 19,000 war crimes in this suburb alone. And there is a mountain of work ahead of them.

More than 131,000 war crimes have already been officially documented by the General Prosecutor’s Office.

“Right now, we must work to bring Putin and all those who started the war and committed crimes against Ukrainians the war to justice, regardless of where, when, or how the war ends. There will be no sustainable peace without justice,” said Matviichuk.

“Their work in cataloguing war crimes is essential and will constitute a critical part of the Nuremburg Trials against Kremlin officials once this war is over,” stated Victor Hetmanczuk, Chair of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation.

The Canada-Ukraine Foundation team has organized approximately 30 public speeches and private meetings in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, and Winnipeg with Ms. Matviichuk, with a three-fold mission: to raise awareness, to deepen relationships with Canadian policy decisionmakers, and to raise funds for our collective continued work.

Oleksandra Matviichuk will meet with representatives of the Canadian federal government and Parliament, diplomats, and international lawyers and human rights experts, including specialists working on sanctions against Russia and frozen assets that can be transferred to Ukraine.

The main focus of CUF’s fundraising efforts in this case is the plight of the thousands of Ukrainian abducted children. They need our help. Only a fraction have been returned to Ukraine, and among those, most have tremendous post-trauma needs.
