Petition for an offer of assistance to Ukrainian law enforcement agencies dealing with mass riots in the country.

Created by A.V. on January 27, 2014

Due to the inability of Ukrainian authorities through the use of force to supress the armed resistance of nationalist and terrorist organizations "PRAVYJ SECTOR", "SAMOOBORONA", "BELYJ MOLOT" and others that provoke internal conflict and violence, torture and murder citizens of Ukraine producing provocations with "murdered on Maidan" -
1. You are kindly requested to take part in the elimination of radical terrorist groups using methods of U.S. intelligence agencies that dispersed demonstrators of "Occupy Wall Street".
2. Likewise we demand an end to the secret financing organized by the U.S. Embassy through the "grants" and "direct transfer to the individuals" of radical groups.

Response to Petition

Response to We the People Petition on Ukraine

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on Ukraine with us through We the People.

The people of Ukraine have the right to define their own future -- peacefully and in an atmosphere of stability. The United States stands with them, as we have for 22 years.

We were appalled by the brutal methods that the Yanukovych government authorized against protesters on the Maidan. We are urging the new leadership at the Ministry of Interior and government security forces to rebuild trust with the people of Ukraine.

We commend the new Ukrainian government for placing a priority on and working toward internal reconciliation, free and fair elections and political inclusivity.

We welcome your interest on Ukrainian issues: there is a lot of talk about Ukraine these days, and not all of what we're seeing reported is accurate. To continue this conversation on the United States' engagement with Ukraine, please visit the website of the Embassy of the United States in Kyiv, follow them on Facebook, or check out the Twitter feed of Geoffrey Pyatt, the United States Ambassador to Ukraine.

Tell us what you think about this response and We the People.
