Three days of liberal Ukraine - IV All-Ukrainian Liberal Forum
On May, 15-17, European Youth of Ukraine has held its annual event, the IV All-Ukrainian Liberal Youth Forum, supported by D-66.   45 young and enthusiastic Ukrainians from various regions of Ukraine gathered in Odessa, the city at the sea, to discuss liberal perspectives for Ukraine together with Dutch, Ukrainian, and Lithuanian colleagues.  The Forum was held in the Days of Europe in Ukraine. “Odessa, as the key city of the South-East, was considered to be instable region for the state. However, this year it becomes strategic region for civil society, and European Youth of Ukraine was one of the first NGOs, who turned their attention to this region. We considered to have 35 participants, and we had over 100 applications. We turned to have 45 participants and 5 organisers, and speakers. The competition of applications allowed to have stronger participants more devoted to discussions” – said the head of EYU organization Anna Rogovchenko. Liberal Forum gave possibility for young people to know more. They were discussing what are liberal values most needed for Ukraine these days; how to match open society and freedom of speech with tough situation of informational war and occupation of part of Ukrainian land. Participants were greeted by Jonas Daniliauskas, Deputy Ambassador of Lithuania in Ukraine. Matthew Kwasiborski, US liberal, and experienced coach on leadership, presented AIPES international leadership programs and interactive games for building internal communication. With Hugo van Hastert, D-66 representative, participants learned about liberalism as progressive, innovative, environment-friendly party with experience worth to learn and repeat. With Oleg Friesen, young expert of Friedrich Naumann Foundation, participants learned about liberal thinking and liberal protest against nazi ideology 70 years ago. Jelena Jesayana from LYMEC Bureau discussed with participants the results of European elections, positions and strenghts of liberals throughout Europe. Well-known Ukrainian speakers were also present at Liberal Youth Forum, speaking about decentralisation and deregulation of state. Participants also had a chance to hear Denis Bogush, one of top ten polittechnologists in Ukraine, who shared his experience about campaigning, building political image etc. “One of the Forum ideas was not to make just one more event for liberals in Ukraine; but also gather people who are not that much thinking about ideology and ideological parties, those who tend to be more conservatives due to myths and stereoptypes about liberals. We consider we were successful at this point. We got new people from the cities where we do not have any represetatives of EYU, and we expect to enlarge our network now”, - has added Anna Rogovchenko. All-Ukrainian Liberal Youth Forum has proven to be an event strenghtening liberal position in the country, promoting liberal economy principles, building strong community of devoted liberals.

LYMEC supports European position of Ukrainians!
The statement of EYU concerning Ukrainian government decision to stop from signing the Association Agreement.
‘European Youth of Ukraine’ strongly condemns a sudden decision of Ukrainian Government to suspend signing Association Agreement between Ukraine and European Union since it is obvious that in ‘time trouble’ preparation for Summit in Vilnius under suspension is meant unilateral refusal. Such actions are diametrically different from European aspirations of Ukrainians. In the time when all the progressive civil society in Ukraine by all the methods promoted signing Association Agreement: actions, seminars, expert conclusions and common with European organizations resolutions for signing the Agreement. With this step the authority of Ukraine confirms its unpredictability, unreliability, lack of firmness in promises, tendency to double games and hypocrisy which is a shame of Ukraine on all civilized world. It is obvious that the current government of Ukraine stands for: - Against the FTA with the EU to fully open the European market for Ukrainian produces on the most positions. - Against clear and specific requirements for the protection of rights and freedoms of citizens, the administration of justice, anti-corruption, environmental protection, against all the European reforms. - Against the will and civilizational choice of the vast majority people of Ukraine. Choosing the wrong ideals of the other geopolitical union, walking on a leash manipulative threats and promises and some short-term concessions, Ukraine’s authority makes the biggest mistake in its history. The people of Ukraine will never forgive that.   Youth Liberal Organization ‘European Youth of Ukraine’
