UWC President appears before the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the House of Commons of Canada
On 3 March 2014 Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) President Eugene Czolij appeared before the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development of the House of Commons of Canada.
Eugene Czolij expressed gratitude to the Government of Canada for its unequivocal support of the citizens of Ukraine and urged Canada to actively support the new government in Ukraine in its daunting challenge of implementing the necessary reforms to reestablish Ukraine as a fully democratic, modern European state.
“Should the international community not act decisively in respect of Russia’s invasion of the Crimea, Russia will be emboldened – as was Nazi Germany following the Munich Agreement – to continue to fuel its imperialistic ambitions under the guise of protecting “the lives of citizens of the Russian Federation” with possible expansion into Eastern Ukraine and eventually other parts of Europe,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
