A Polish Day at The KF
Saturday, June 7, 2014 - 6:30 pm
A Discussion about Ukraine
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. WE WILL INFORM YOU ABOUT THE NEW DATES SOON.
Please join us for a discussion about the current situation in Ukraine, with the Defense Attache at the Polish Embassy in the United States,
General Jaroslaw Strozyk
Since the beginning of Euromaidan protests that sprung up last fall in Kyiv and throughout Ukraine, the Poles have been exceptionally active in supporting Ukraine. Polish government leaders have advocated for the Ukrainian cause in European Union and NATO leadership bodies.
Mainstream and especially independent media reporters have attracted the Polish public's attention to Ukrainian events, with social networks again playing a key role. Scores of Polish observers have reported from the Maidan in Kyiv, from other Ukrainian cities and the Crimean peninsula.
Polish minority organizations in Ukraine also have endorsed the fight for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity and warned against any attempts to sow discord between the Ukrainians and the Poles at this time. Some Polish NGOs have established permanent presence in Ukraine.
In Poland, many civic organizations and local government institutions provided emergency assistance to Ukrainians. As a result, many Ukrainian Euromaidan participants consider the Poles to be their greatest allies abroad. Overall, the sense of friendship between Poland and Ukraine is now stronger than... perhaps ever, despite horrible events in our past. It has been reported that the newly elected Ukrainian president's first international trip will be to Poland, for the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the breakthrough elections which ended communism in Poland.
