Czolij calls on Sweden to expand sanctions against Russia

President of the World Congress of Ukrainians Eugene Czolij urged members of the Riksdag, the national parliament of Sweden, to extend sanctions against Russia and to support Ukraine on its way to the EU.

An Ukrinform correspondent learned this from the headquarters of the Ukrainian World Congress.

"The President of the World Congress of Ukrainians urged Sweden to be indestructible in the protection of independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine and to support its European aspirations, as well as to extend targeted sanctions against the Russian Federation and do not lift them until it completely fulfills the Minsk agreements and stops the illegal occupation of Crimea," the UWC reports.

The issues on ratification of the Association Agreement between the EU and Ukraine and introduction of visa-free regime for Ukrainians who travel to Europe were among other important topics of the talk.
