Zelensky to hold press conference on his presidency first year results
The date of the press conference is yet unknown20:55, 16 May 2020prm.uaPresident of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky is going to hold a press conference following the results of the first year of his presidency. This was stated by the head of the President’s Office Andriy Yermak during a meeting with G7 ambassadors and the head of the EU mission in Ukraine, the press service of the head of state writes.
“Andriy Yermak also said that the President of Ukraine intends to conduct communication with the media following the results of the first year of his presidency,” it was informed.
We recall, on October 10, 2019 Zelensky held a press marathon. This was the first large-scale communication of the president with journalists. The marathon lasted 14 hours.
So, the head of state hopes that this day will surely come and our state will be a full part of the European family.
“This year, our European friends celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration, with which the European Union actually began its reckoning. Robert Schuman’s words are still relevant today: Europe will not be built immediately or according to a single plan. Building a united, prosperous and successful Europe continues. It is obvious to me that this process cannot be considered completed without Ukraine,” Zelensky said.
The President noted that the phrase “Ukraine is Europe” should not be just a formal slogan, which is recalled once a year. This should be part of our consciousness.
“I have always said that Europe is first of all a way of thinking. Europe begins with each of us. With each citizen. With the observance of laws, payment of taxes, protection of democratic values and civil society, free expression of will, freedom of speech, thought and religion, equality and respect. From the “allergy” to taking or giving bribes, from a properly parked car and a cigarette butt thrown into the trash. Let’s make sure that we have Europe Day every day,” Zelensky said.
