On 29 June 2018, Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) President Eugene Czolij fulfilled a visit to Luxembourg to further important Ukrainian issues.
In Luxembourg the UWC President met with Chairman of the Foreign and European Affairs Committee, Defense, Cooperation and Immigration, and Member of the Parliament of Luxembourg Marc Angel and Honorary Consul of Ukraine in Luxembourg Claude Radoux. During these meetings Eugene Czolij called upon Luxembourg to continue supporting Ukraine in the defence of its territorial integrity including the creation of conditions for the deployment of an UN peacekeeping mission to the Donbas and an OSCE monitoring mission to illegally occupied Crimea. Further, Eugene Czolij acknowledged the recent extension by the European Union of sanctions against the Russian Federation and called to further strengthen them for the gross violations by the Russian Federation of the Minsk agreements. The UWC President also informed about the latest significant reforms in Ukraine, emphasized the need to present an objective analysis during the EU-Ukraine Summit scheduled for 9 July 2018, and urged Luxembourg to continue supporting Ukraine’s Eurointegration. In addition, Eugene Czolij called for Luxembourg to recognize the Holodomor as genocide of the Ukrainian people.
The UWC President was accompanied during the trip by Deputy Director of the UWC Mission to International Organizations in Brussels Dmytro Panchuk.
“The Ukrainian World Congress will continue supporting Ukraine in the defence of its territorial integrity and in furthering its processes of European and Euro-Atlantic integration,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
