Ukrainian World Congress extends sincere Christmas greetings
On behalf of the Ukrainian World Congress, I would like to express my sincerest greetings to all Ukrainians and friends of Ukraine as we unite in celebrating the Birth of Christ!
As the year 2019 comes to a close we can look back upon a year of new UWC success stories including the promotion of the immense economic potential of Ukraine during international forums and conferences in both Europe and North America, and the first ever Ukrainian Day in Berlin during which UWC leadership had the opportunity to engage German elected officials, academics and civil society on issues related to Ukraine.
Ties between Ukraine and the Ukrainian diaspora remain strong with a mutual commitment to restoring Ukraine’s territorial integrity including the return of Crimea, ending Russia’s aggression, securing the release of all illegally detained political prisoners and hostages, and strengthening Ukraine’s independence and democracy,
I firmly believe that together, the Ukrainian people will overcome every challenge that lies ahead on the path to full European and Euro-Atlantic integration, and that peace will once again reign over Ukrainian soil.
As we gather during this holiday season let us remember in our prayers the brave men and women who remain on the front lines defending Ukraine from a foreign aggressor. May we remember and extend a helping hand to those who continue to suffer the consequences of this unjust war.
I remain eternally grateful for your commitment, dedication and support of the Ukrainian World Congress and confident that together, regardless of where we live, we will continue to build a strong Ukrainian nation for many generations.
On behalf of the Ukrainian World Congress and my family, Adrianna, Roman, Danylo, Larysa and Olena, I extend my best wishes for peace, harmony a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year.
Christ is Born!
