Establish an Australian Embassy in Ukraine
Petition Background (Preamble):
Ukraine, with over 48 Million people is situated geographically in the centre of Europe. It history and struggle for independence spans hundreds of years.
In 1991 Ukraine declared independence form the former Soviet Union and in doing so created a free independent democratic state. Something that Ukraine has sought for hundreds of years.
In August 2004 Ukraine (which has limited economic resources) appointed its first official ambassador to Australia, Dr. Olexandr P. Mischenko.
Currently Australia's diplomatic representation to Ukraine is via the Australian Embassy based in Moscow, Russia.
The time has come for Australia to recognise Ukraine as an independent state and to demonstrate its commitment to the people of Ukraine and Australia by establishing an Australian embassy and the appointment of an Australian Ambassador to Ukraine.
