UWC President calls for strengthening existing sanctions against Russia

Ukrainian World Congress President (UWC) Eugene Czolij, during his working trip to Brussels, stressed the importance of expanding the existing sanctions against the Russian Federation, the UWC press service reports.

“With respect to the ongoing aggression, the UWC President stressed the importance of making every effort to strengthen the existing sanctions regime against the Russian Federation, including its exclusion from the SWIFT financial network,” the report reads.

The UWC President also drew attention to the unlawful activities of the Russian Federation which have disrupted the free flow of traffic in the Sea of Azov and negatively impacted trade with Ukraine.

“Highlighting the hybrid aggression of the Russian Federation, including widespread disinformation and cyber warfare, Eugene Czolij urged support from the international community in helping to reduce interference by the Russian Federation in Ukraine’s upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary elections,” reads the report.

In addition, Eugene Czolij stressed the need to deploy a UN peacekeeping mission to the Donbas region.

“He also suggested that the EU consider appointing an EU Special Representative for Ukraine in view of its importance to the EU and its member states,” reads the report.
