During a visit to Greece, President of the Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) Eugene Czolij has called on the Parliament of Greece to recognize the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian people.

Ukrinform learnt this from the press service of the Ukrainian World Congress.

"Eugene Czolij, together with Head of the Ukrainian Diaspora Association in Greece Halyna Masliuk, presented the Diplomatic Representative of the Chair of the Parliament of Greece, Athanasios Theocharopoulos, with an appeal from Ukrainian organizations in Greece, including the Association, for the Parliament of Greece to recognize the Holodomor as a genocide of the Ukrainian people," the press service informed.

During the meetings with high-ranking governing officials and civil society of Greece, the UWC president drew attention to the hybrid aggression of the Russian Federation which occupied Crimea, continues to wage military actions in Eastern Ukraine and grossly violates the human rights of Ukrainians.

Eugene Czolij highlighted the serious threat of the Russian Federation for the international community as well, demonstrated particularly by its powerful cyber-attacks, specifically the spreading of the NotPetya virus in Europe, Asia and America; meddling in elections, including in the U.S.A. and France; financing of politicians; destabilization processes in neighbouring countries; acts of terrorism; mass disinformation and the recent very dangerous chemical attacks.

The UWC president called upon Greece, an EU and NATO member state, to support the extension and strengthening of sanctions against the Russian Federation, and the Euro-integrational and Euro-Atlantic processes in Ukraine.

Eugene Czolij discussed with representatives of business in Greece the tremendous economic potential of Ukraine and encouraged them to invest in Ukraine.
