UWC and AUGB Address British Prime Minister in Advance of the 2021 G7 Summit
The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) and the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB) addressed the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson in advance of the 2021 G7 Summit, which is to take place on June 11-13 in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, England.
On behalf of both organizations, the UWC President Paul Grod and the AUGB Chairman Petro Rewko thanked the Prime Minister for his government’s unwavering support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and for the G7 countries’ continuous support for Ukraine’s chosen path of pro-Western reforms.
Considering Russia’s unpredictable and provocative actions on Ukraine’s borders, Moscow’s blatant disregard for international law and contempt for the values of the rules-based democratic world, its hostile activities in the United Kingdom and in other European states, which pose a real threat to the stability and security of the whole European continent, the UWC, and the AUGB have requested Prime Minister Johnson to provide representation to Ukraine at the forthcoming G7 summit.
“In the light of these threats and Ukraine’s position on the front line of Russian aggression, we call upon you to provide representation to Ukraine at the forthcoming G7 summit, by inviting President Volodymyr Zelensky to take part in the summit’s outreach sessions and special events. Since Ukraine has continually demonstrated its intention to settle the conflict in Eastern Ukraine by diplomatic and political means, such a step would ensure a proper and a fair discussion regarding the current security situation in Europe,” reads the official letter.
