Mr. Eugene Czolij, a partner in the Litigation Group at Lavery, was on the front page of the February 19, 2013 issue of KyivPost, Ukraine’s leading English-language newspaper. As President of the Ukrainian World Congress, an international coordinating body for Ukrainian communities in the diaspora representing the interests of over 20 million Ukrainians, Mr. Czolij spoke in favour of Ukraine becoming a member of the European Union.
He pointed out that he will be in Brussels during the week of February 25, 2013 on the occasion of the European Union-Ukraine Summit, where he intends to promote Ukraine’s European integration. According to the President of the Ukrainian World Congress, Ukraine’s Euro-integration will give Ukrainians the opportunity to live in harmony within a European community that shares their values and respects the principles of the inviolability of state borders, democracy, fundamental freedoms and human rights. It will also give them access to the largest economy in the world.
