Write NATO today urging no-fly zone over Ukraine

Write to:

[email protected]

Use all or any of the wording below:

Ukraine has many times proved it belongs to the democratic world. Protection of democracy for Ukrainians is paramount. Today, Ukraine needs the help of all democracies to overcome the dictator of a huge country, which is a threat to the world. NATO must intervene.

In just the past few days, the UN Human Rights office confirms at least thousand civilians have been killed and another thousand injured by Russian attacks. These indiscriminate attacks on civilian targets with bombs, missiles, rockets and shells constitute a serious war crime under the Geneva Conventions, Rule 71. To protect his population, Ukrainian commander-in-chief, President Volodymyr Zelensky, requested a no-fly zone.

I urge you to establish a no-fly zone over Ukraine, to give Ukraine more anti-defense systems, to give Ukraine fighter jets. Help Ukraine shelter the sky — and Ukrainian heroes will handle the rest.

Your Representative at Congress

Senator at Your State

Use all or any of the wording below:

Dear Senator/Congressman/Congresswoman,

I would like to express my concern about the situation in Ukraine. We are witnessing a true genocide of the Ukrainian people. The U.S. has a moral obligation to stop this.  The Ukrainian Army and civilians are bravely facing the heavily militarized and massive Russian Army and fighting for their country. Russia is behaving like a terrorist state and should be labeled as such. 

The following are critically needed by Ukrainian troops to defend themselves by sea, air, and land:

  • Heavy anti-aircraft launcher systems similar to Patriot MIM-104
  • Additional man-portable air defense systems similar to FIM-92 Stingers
  • Additional man-portable fire-and-forget anti-tank missiles similar to FGM-148 Javelin
  • Heavy artillery, more tanks, armored vehicles, more ammunition, and protective body gear

The people of Ukraine are in desperate need of protection. Sheltering the Sky over Ukrainian territory can save thousands of lives! We believe that successful anti-missile defense can be achieved by the Ukrainians themselves with the right type of equipment. 

We believe the Ukraine-Democracy Lend-Lease Act of 2022 can dramatically assist Ukraine in winning this war by cutting red tape and allowing Ukraine to lease heavier equipment that the US is hesitant to gift. It is imperative to pass this bill promptly. 

As a US Senator/Congressman/Congresswoman, you are in a unique position to stop the beginning of World War III and to save thousands, possibly millions of innocent lives. We plead with you to support Ukraine on all proposals put in front of you and co-sign the Lend-Lease Act as soon as possible. 

Sincerely,

Your name & address


Sign a Petition to Impose an embargo on Russian oil


Sign a Petition to Remove Russia from the UN Human Rights Council immediately

Dear friends, please sign and share the petition to remove Russia from the UN Human Rights Council. Russia’s continuing presence on the Human Rights Council is an affront to common sense, human rights, and international peace. Russia has no moral right to be part of an international body that promotes global cooperation in upholding human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Thank you!




House of Ukraine is a cultural museum in San Diego providing information to the public about the country of Ukraine.

    Location: Balboa Park
    Address: 1450 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101

    Join Our Worldwide Protest Against Sexual Violence Towards Women as a Weapon of War in Ukraine by participating in the protest in San Francisco. We will be joined by other protesters around the US and the world on the same day and time.

    On May 28th, we will stand with and commemorate Ukrainian women who have been the victims of brutal rape at the hands of the Russian soldiers who invaded Ukraine on February 24th. This protest originated in Latvia and Estonia by brave women who stood partially naked in front of the Russian Embassy, with their hands tied behind their backs and bags over their faces.

    Now is your chance to fight for the women of Ukraine who were not strong enough to fight back. Now is your opportunity to give them a voice.

    BE THEIR VOICE, BE THEIR FIGHT!
