The Ukrainian World Congress hopes for continued support of the new leadership of France in furthering European integration of Ukraine.
This is said in the letter of congratulations to President-elect of France Emmanuel Macron, sent by Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) President Eugene Czolij.
"The Ukrainian World Congress and its member organizations trust that the Ukrainian people can continue to rely on France in the defence of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and furthering its European integration," Czolij said.
The UWC President also expressed gratitude to France for its unwavering support of Ukraine at a time of considerable political uncertainty for the European continent, exacerbated by the disinformation campaign of the Russian Federation.
As a reminder, Emmanuelle Macron defeated far-right candidate Marin Le Pen in the second round of the presidential election on May 7.
