You supported the Orange Revolution? Now you can help.

You supported the Revolution? Now what are you going to do?

Everybody knows what happened last year with the Orange Revolution but few are paying attention to the struggle to finally bring Ukraine into the modern world economy. I know the fact that we aren't facing carnage in the streets makes this less newsworthy for the MSM but it is critical that 30 year old trade restrictions be finally lifted to allow Ukraine to move forward. Please go here and click on the link to "Jackson-Vanik Graduation Coalition Information Page."
