In the Donetsk region today, March 1, held a Congress of women of Ukraine, which was attended by more than 700 women leaders from all regions of the country. About it reports a press-service of the party “Opposition platform? For life.”
The participants of the Congress appealed to all presidential candidates of Ukraine, urging them to withdraw their candidatures in favor of a single opposition candidate from the South-East, which has the highest rating and chances of winning. Women also adopted a resolution which set out their main requirements – the achievement of peace and social protection of people.
“Five years of war have taught us to unite, to act, to build a world! Together with women leaders of Ukraine we have developed the women’s peace plan, most of the items which formed the basis for the PACE resolution on Ukraine. Risking their lives, women have made more than 100 humanitarian missions in the zone of active hostilities in the East of Ukraine, where they provided humanitarian, legal and psychological assistance to more than 30 thousand children and civilians. We did a fantastic job and showed an example to all, that at the crucial moment for the country need to be wise and unite, putting aside ambitions and contradictions”, – said the initiator of the National platform “Women for Peace” Natalia Korolevska.

For women it will be the best gift on March 8,” – said Natalia Korolevska.
