On 14 May 2019, the First Deputy Minister of Information Policy of Ukraine, Emine Dzhaparova, spoke at an international conference “Implementing Regional Development Projects on the Basis of Intermunicipal Cooperation: The Case of Poland,” which took place in Chernihiv.
On behalf of the Government of Ukraine, Ms Dzhaparova welcomed the delegation of representatives of Polish local self-government, currently on stay in the Chernihiv region within the framework of the project “Europe Day 2019: Cooperation of Polish Gminas and Ukrainian Territorial Communities for Improving Local Self-Government.”
“We are grateful to Poland for supporting and recurrently co-authoring UN General Assembly resolutions regarding Russia’s occupation of Crimea. Poland is one of the most active proponents of the EU’s sanctions policy against Russia. It is with Poland as the first EU member state we launched consultations at the Foreign Ministry level on the legal consequences of Crimean occupation,” the First Deputy Minister was quoted as saying.
Ms Dzhaparova also thanked Poland for consistently supporting Ukraine in matters of preserving its territorial integrity and sovereignty, and providing comprehensive assistance, including to the wounded and children.
