UCU Statement on the War in Ukraine

Dear Members,

Ukrainian Credit Union Limited (UCU) strongly condemns Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in defiance of moral and international law. We stand in solidarity with Ukraine and with our employees and members with family in the country.

We commend the Canadian government’s swift and firm action to impose sanctions on Russia and in reinforcing our NATO allies in Europe. UCU urges further concerted efforts to support Ukraine at this critical time to advance the cause of world peace and security.

UCU is proud that the Canadian Credit Union Association (CCUA) has joined in the effort to support the UCC/Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) humanitarian campaign for Ukraine by appealing to all Canadian credit unions from coast to coast to contribute. We gratefully acknowledge the initiative and lead donation from Smith Falls Credit Union in Ontario.

Members are invited to join in the CUF campaign or to contribute to UCU Helps Ukraine through their branch to provide humanitarian support to wounded Ukrainian military personnel and their families.
