We stand with Ukraine

As Liberal Democrats, we believe in internationalism, democracy, and the right of people to live without fear.  Ukraininan President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s party is our sister party, and we are proud to stand alongside him and promote our shared values.  Our party is pushing for the fiercest possible sanctions on the Russian Government.  Lib Dem leader Ed Davey, who urged BP to pull out of Russian oil company Rosneft, is calling on all other British companies to follow suit.

Our priority is to help the Ukrainian people.  The Lib Dems are asking the British Government to resettle Ukrainian refugees in the UK without preconditions.  Anything less would be a failure of moral leadership and leave thousands at risk.  Add your name to our petition here.

Tilehurst Lib Dem Councillor Meri O’Connell says: “The Lib Dems believe that green spaces like this are precious assets which need protecting.  The pressure to over-develop our area is having a major impact on our wildlife, our schools and our health services.  We will oppose any development on our woodlands and parkland.
