Ukraine project of FUEN started

From 15-17 June, representatives of minorities in Ukraine and Russia were visiting FUEN in Flensburg to discuss the situation in Ukraine. They stayed together in the European Academy Sankelmark and had discussions in the House of Minorities of FUEN.

The highlight of the programme was the panel discussion that took place in Sønderborg, in Denmark, at the conference “Minorities in border regions’ of the Association of European Border Regions AEBR, an association bringing together almost 100 cross-border regions in Europe.

The participants in the programme, among them representatives of the Crimean Tatars, Greeks and Germans from Ukraine and Kumyks, Karelians and Germans from Russia, and the former Commissioner for Minority Issues of the Ukrainian Government, Gennadiy Druzenko, tried to find solutions and concrete actions that alleviate their situation, also with the help of the regions attending the conference.
