UWC President Eugene Czolij addresses University of Ottawa Ukrainian Students’ Club
On 28 October 2014 Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) President Eugene Czolij spoke to members of the University of Ottawa Ukrainian Students’ Club in Ottawa, Canada, on the topic World Crisis with Ukraine in the Forefront.
In his address the UWC President noted that EuroMaidan was testimony to the maturity and unity of the Ukrainian nation in the fight for the ideals of democracy and Ukrainian statehood, and debunked the myth about the invincibility of the Russian Federation. He also emphasized that events surrounding the annexation of Crimea by Russia and its current aggression in Eastern Ukraine constitute a global crisis. Eugene Czolij further shared information about the work of the UWC dedicated to engaging the international community to effectively assist Ukraine in countering Russia’s military aggression and secure peace and stability in the world.
The meeting, organized by the University of Ottawa Ukrainian Students’ Club and attended by its members and the Canada-Ukraine Parliamentary Program 2014 interns, engaged participants in a discussion of the presentation and current events in Ukraine.
After the discussion, Ukrainian Students’ Club President Michael Burchill and Executive members and meeting organizers Iuliia Zubrytska and Sofia Kominko presented the UWC President with a medal in recognition of work furthering the rule of law in Ukraine.
“The Ukrainian World Congress calls upon Ukrainian students to work actively in defense of Ukraine’s independence and territorial integrity,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
