Head of the Ukrainian-American community Mazurkevich: “Ukraine must become a member of NATO.
Journalist Ali Cinar interviewed Ulana Mazurkevich, chairwoman of the Ukrainian Human Rights Committee, about recent developments in Ukraine.
WASHINGTON, DC, U.S., July 5, 2022/EINPresswire.com/ — President Mazurkevich said Ukraine must become a member of NATO and that in its foreign policy Ukraine is a strong ally of the West.
“Ukraine is a bulwark against Russian aggression, and it is waging a hot war nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians have died or been injured in this war with Russia. Ukraine stands alone Many countries have expressed their support I know Ukraine appreciates this support, but he is the only one to defend his sovereignty If Ukraine were a member of NATO, would Russia invade Crimea and Western Ukraine is a difficult question to answer, Mazurkevich added.
She would like to see more from the Biden administration. And the exclusion of Russia from the SWIFT payment system would be a severe blow to its economy. Mazurkevich also said she would like President Biden to visit Ukraine soon; such a trip would send a powerful message of support to Ukraine.
“I am so happy that Ukraine’s neighbor Turkey has become a good friend and ally of Ukraine. I remember when Turkey was the first country to recognize Ukraine’s independence after Ukraine voted for independence on December 1, 1991.” said Mazurkevich.
“When I think of Turkey and Ukraine, and I remember my first visit to Istanbul. What I desperately wanted to see was the tomb of Roxolana, the wife of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Roxolana was a young Ukrainian girl who was captured in a raid by Turks. She became the most powerful woman in the kingdom and advised Suleyman in his military conquests. In my Ukrainian Saturday school I also remember reading stories about the Turks crossing the Black Sea, landing on the shores of Ukraine, raiding villages and capturing boys and girls to serve the sultan. The captured young boys would become the fiercest fighters in the sultan’s army. Probably many in Turkey have Ukrainian DNA partly because of these raids. Ali, who knows, you might have a Ukrainian DNA connection! Mazurkevich said.
