The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) is monitoring the case of Ukrainian National Guard Sergeant Vitali Markiv, who was arrested in Italy on 30 June 2017 for the alleged murder of an Italian journalist on Eastern Ukrainian territories controlled by the Russian Federation by virtue of its hybrid aggression against Ukraine.

Although this is now a matter for the Italian judiciary, the UWC notes the concerns of its constituents, many of whom have joined the international call to action in support of Sergeant Vitali Markiv.

“The Ukrainian World Congress will continue to monitor the case of Ukrainian National Guard Sergeant Vitali Markiv to ensure that he is treated according to internationally recognized high standards of justice,” stated UWC President Eugene Czolij.
