I appeal to the representatives of the governments and parliaments of democratic countries: turn your attention to the events in Ukraine.
"I am Pavlo Khazan, the Chairman of the National Defense Foundation.
The National Defense Foundation was created in the beginning of war.
With charitable aid of people and businesses we made it possible to stop the
enemy and provide volunteer battalions and units of Armed Forces of Ukraine all
that was needed to fight the aggressor.
Under the supervision of the Foundation the Separate Special
Communications Unit was created to deploy secure communications in the ATO
zone. SSCU takes part in the anti-terroristic operation in the framework of
Civil-Military Cooperation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Foundation has
been providing aid to hospitals, we have organized "Soldiers Waiting Room"
at Dnipropetrovsk train station, we provide military units with first aid kits
and conduct tactical medicine training. Not only we help the army, but we are
also much involved in promoting defense of our country.
On October 31 terrible events took place. Armed special operation
forces broke into the homes of volunteers and office of the National Defense
Foundation. They broke doors, scared people and behaved arrogantly and
cynically. Humiliating searches were held in homes of my sister and volunteer of
the Foundation Natalia Khazan, a famous volunteer Iryna Kashlevska, deputy
chairman of the Foundation Oleksii Angurets, member of the Supervisory Board
Gennadiy Korban and in my apartment.
Those were not regular searches but impudent invasions. They took
all of my home IT equipment, my personal belongings, the personal items of the
members of my family and money that my family saved for medical operation to save
my sight. I am losing sight because of injury, which occurred at Maidan after firing
of tear gas.
I am wondering what did I fight for at Maidan? What humanistic
values did we stand for? What did our soldiers die for? Why did thousands of
our activists had to suffer? The government of Yanukovych fought against active
citizens and public leaders. And whom is today's government fighting against? Against
volunteers, volunteer battalions and soldiers who defend the country?
I appeal to the representatives of the governments and parliaments
of democratic countries: turn your attention to the events in Ukraine. Is this
the democracy that we want to build in Europe? Do the events in Ukraine conform
to the European or American provisions of law?
I appeal to you with the request to help civil society and
volunteers, the people who did not let the enemy occupy the whole territory of
Ukraine and go further to Western Europe.
We really need your help," emphasizes Pavlo Khazan, civil
activist, commander of Separate Special Communications Unit, expert on national
security and state-building in his address.
