Pataki, Mack Continue Support of Ukraine

Earle Mack and Peter Brant in March

Former New York Governor George Pataki and former U.S. Ambassador to Finland Earle Mack, who joined forces for a humanitarian mission to Ukraine last spring, continued their support of the country with the delivery of over one dozen, industrial-grade heaters to refugee shelters.

While leading a humanitarian delegation to Ukraine and border areas accepting refugees, Gov. Pataki and Ambassador Mack delivered large-scale portable heaters, each of them able to warm up to 10 families in the various shelters across the region. The temporary shelters, many of which are converted schools or municipal buildings, have been without adequate heat as the Russian military has begun targeting basic infrastructure in the country.

“Over the past several weeks, it has become clear that the Russian strategy in Ukraine is to severely damage, if not obliterate, the electric and energy infrastructure across the country,” said Ambassador Mack. “This means that for millions in Ukraine, this cold, unbearable winter must be endured without access to heat. The consequences are profound, and it is critical that we get boots on the ground and provide Ukrainians with tools that can make a difference. If each heater can save one life, this mission will be an immense success and pave the way for future efforts.”
