Рідна Школа Колядує

Merry Christmas! Христос Ся Рождає! Славімо Його!

This year Ridna Shkola students are not able to go carolling and spread the joy of Christmas due to COVID… On top of those multigenerational traditions, carolling was always one of the most important fundraisers – so much needed to sustain our school.

We hope that this pre-recorded carol will bring some joy to your homes and will brighten the season!

For information on how to make a donation in support of Ridna Shkola, please see the posted text accompanying the video at https://www.facebook.com/UNFRegina/videos/485036606287243.

Ridna Shkola is a program of the Ukrainian National Federation – Regina Branch

Statement by Press Secretary Jen Psaki on President Biden’s Call with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine

(January 2, 2022) President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. spoke today with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine.

President Biden made clear that the United States and its allies and partners will respond decisively if Russia further invades Ukraine. The leaders expressed support for diplomatic efforts, starting next week with the bilateral Strategic Stability Dialogue, at NATO through the NATO-Russia Council, and at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe.

President Biden underscored the commitment of the United States and its allies and partners to the principle of “nothing about you without you.” He reaffirmed the United States’ commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. He also expressed support for confidence-building measures to de-escalate tensions in Donbas and active diplomacy to advance the implementation of the Minsk Agreements, in support of the Normandy Format.
