Last week UWC President Paul Grod held a video conference with Witold Jan Waszczykowski, MEP, Head of the Delegation to the EU-Ukraine Parliamentary Association Committee and Vice-Chair of EP Foreign Affairs Committee (AFET).

The discussion focused on the security issues and the roadmap to Ukraine’s European integration. Paul Grod thanked the Delegation to the EU-Ukraine Parliamentary Association Committee for its contributions to strengthening the relations between the EU and Ukraine and assisting Ukraine in its pro-European strategic course.

The parties emphasized that it is incredibly important to keep reminding the world that this is not a “Ukrainian crisis”. This is the Russian-Ukrainian war, and Russia continues its military aggression to deter Ukraine from further European and Euro-Atlantic integration. UWC consistently advocates for maintaining and strengthening the EU sanctions against Russia until it fully de-occupies Crimea and Ukrainian Donbas.

“The civil society and the Ukrainian communities in Europe and globally have a significant role to play in the advocacy for Ukraine and its people. We thank the EU partners for their unwavering support and are confident that we will continue working together towards a shared objective”, – stated Paul Grod.
