Letter to the Ambassador the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America, our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families and countries of all those affected by  this tragic incident involving the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17.

Letter to Ambassador ek

Ambassador Hussein Haniff, Permanent Representative of Malaysia to the UN,
Ambassador Rudolf Bekink, Netherlands Embassy
Ambassador Karel van Oosterom, Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the UN.
Letter to the Ambassador Sergey Vitaly Churkin, Mission of the Russian Federation to the UN, demanding immediate release of kidnapped Ukrainian Lt. Nadiya Savchenko.

Dear Sir,

We demand the immediate release of kidnapped Ukrainian Lt. Nadiya Savchenko! This violates not only all norms of international law, but also the basic rules of decency and morality.

When illegally captured and transported to Russia  Lt. Nadiya Savchenko was in Donetsk, Ukraine on a humanitarian mission, not on the unsubstantiated charges filed against her.
