Christmas Cards to Ukrainian Sailors Detained by Russian Federation


The recently held “Youth Camp”, organised by the National Executive of the Ukrainian Youth Association of Australia, was held at its campsite “Karpaty” in Victoria, from 26 December 2018 – 3 January 2019.

During the camp, all campers wrote Christmas and New Year greetings to the 24 Ukrainian sailors that have been illegally captured and detained by the Russian Federation. These sailors are being illegally held in Stalin’s favourite prisons in Moscow.

The campers, members of the Ukrainian Youth Association and Plast Ukrainian Scouts, and some independent young people, noted that we as Ukrainians in far-away Australia have not forgotten about these political prisoners, and we remind the world that we are thinking of them.
