Organized diaspora important to strengthen global support for Ukraine – Grod

Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) President Paul Grod has noted the important role of the organized Ukrainian diaspora in strengthening the global support for Ukraine.

He said this during a virtual meeting with the Member of the European Parliament, former Lithuanian Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius, according to the UWC website.

“UWC is committed to further strengthen the international coalitions in support of Ukraine’s reform and European integration strategic agenda. Ukrainian communities in the EU, united by UWC, are crucial in the grassroots advocacy effort for Ukraine, working with their MEPs, their home governments, parliaments and civil society leaders,” Grod said.

The meeting was also attended by UWC Foreign Policy Council Chair-former Ambassador of Canada to Ukraine Roman Waschuk, Executive Director of the UWC Mariia Kupriianova, and the UWC office representatives in Brussels Igor Chocholak and Anna Yavorska.

The UWC president thanked MEP Kubilius for his continued support for Ukraine. 

Kubilius stressed the significance of developing a strong foreign policy strategy for Ukraine and building international coalitions of support, providing historical examples and parallels from Lithuania. They also discussed the roadmap for further European integration of Ukraine, as well as the pace of reforms in Ukraine.

The participants highlighted the prominent role Ukraine plays in the EU Eastern Partnership.
