“If we fail to stop Russia not only in Ukraine, but also in the West, a new great war is inevitable. Therefore, we continue the global fight against Russia with our partners – the European Congress of Ukrainians and its member organizations”, – emphasized Serhii Kuzan, Chairman of the USCC.
As a result of the conference USCC and the European Congress of Ukrainians have agreed to mutually open a representative office in Ukraine and strengthen the work of the EKU office in Brussels.
“It was the Russian influence that has been rooted in our country since the Soviet occupation that allowed it to weaken us for three decades and start a war. So now Ukrainians around the world have to share this experience. An important contribution of everyone abroad now is to pay attention to all manifestations of Russian influence and emphasize them to the citizens of the states”, – said Solomiya Khoma, coordinator of international cooperation at USCC.
