UWC, AUGB call on British PM to provide representation to Ukraine at G7 summit

The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) and the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB) have asked Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson to provide representation to Ukraine at the 2021 G7 Summit.

This was said in a statement posted on the UWC website.

"Considering Russia’s unpredictable and provocative actions on Ukraine’s borders, Moscow’s blatant disregard for international law and contempt for the values of the rules-based democratic world, its hostile activities in the United Kingdom and in other European states, which pose a real threat to the stability and security of the whole European continent, the UWC, and the AUGB have requested Prime Minister Johnson to provide representation to Ukraine at the forthcoming G7 summit,” the statement reads.

In the light of these threats and Ukraine’s position on the front line of Russian aggression, the UWC and the AUGB called upon the British PM to provide representation to Ukraine at the forthcoming G7 summit, by inviting President Volodymyr Zelensky to take part in the summit’s outreach sessions and special events.

"Since Ukraine has continually demonstrated its intention to settle the conflict in Eastern Ukraine by diplomatic and political means, such a step would ensure a proper and fair discussion regarding the current security situation in Europe," reads the official letter.

On behalf of both organizations, UWC President Paul Grod and AUGB Chairman Petro Rewko thanked the Prime Minister for his government’s unwavering support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and for the G7 countries’ continuous support for Ukraine’s chosen path of pro-Western reforms.

The 2021 G7 Summit is scheduled for June 11-13 in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, England.

In March, the UWC called on Germany, the United States, and the international community to take all necessary measures to immediately terminate Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, which is nearing completion.
