The Ambassador gave an emotional speech with a moving video on the plight of his homeland Ukraine, since it was invaded by Russia earlier this year.

He thanked the Australian public and Federal Government for their support and gave a shout out to two Western Australian local governments for their contribution.

Mr Myronshnychenko called on attendees to adopt a region in Ukraine and help support the reconstruction and recovery in the area.

He told the audience never to be complacent. He never thought Russia would invade Ukraine.

The video linked below shows how Ukrainian Municipal leaders wearing fatigues, bearing arms and witnessing the destruction of their beautiful towns and cities.

The final word: “In Ukraine, we’re defending all the rights and values that are important to Australians too”. – Vasyl Myronshnychenko
