The Association of Ukrainians in Tasmania is horrified at the events unfolding in Ukraine at the present time.  We wish to express our unified support and offer sincere condolences to relatives, friends and citizens of Ukraine and the global community affected by the tragic circumstances unfolding in Ukraine.   

However, we know that this war is not new.  Despite Ukraine’s declared Independence in 1991, since 2014, President Putin has increased pressure on Ukraine through, amongst other acts, the annexation of Crimea and increased influence in the Donbas region. The escalation and invasion of Ukrainian as part of Putin’s expansionist policies is another act that must not be tolerated.  The implications of Moscow’s war in Ukraine are continuing to have significant and global consequences. 

In recent years, Ukraine has been strengthening its democracy and economy, and dealing with corruption. This has increased its status globally.  Ukrainians value their unique culture and heritage, and are by their very nature are humble, honest, and passionate people. We embrace opportunity and optimism as way of managing the challenges experienced through historical struggles.

The Ukrainian community in Tasmania is diverse. It consists of those who arrived in 1948 as displaced persons and their descendants, as well as arrivals from Ukraine in last 70 years who have chosen to make Australia their home.  As a migrant community, Ukrainians wish to unite with the broader Australian community and seek a unified friendship in opposing the unnecessary, violent, and aggressive actions on the people of Ukraine.

Any offer of support – whether it be an act of kindness, an active voice or merely a prayerful thought, will be a affirmation of human resolve and kindness.

The Association of Ukrainians in Tasmania was established in 1954 and currently supports members all over the state, from Hobart to Burnie and beyond.  We welcome new members of Ukrainian descent, as well as associate members from the broader community who wish to support our Association and members.
