As the new EU Ambassador to Ukraine from 1st September 2012, it is a great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Delegation of the European Union.
After 20 years in the Polish Diplomatic Service, and as someone from the Polish Solidarity generation, I wanted to put my wide-ranging personal experience to the service of EU-Ukrainian relations.
In the four years ahead of me, I'd like to make the most of the opportunities that are on offer for Ukraine and the EU in the agreements that we have negotiated, and the potential benefits available to us under the European Union's Neighbourhood Policy. The European Union and its Member States can provide experience and support for Ukrainian institutions, legal structures, and stakeholders to converge with European laws and standards. For decades EU integration has proved to be an efficient tool for modernising countries, for bringing down the barriers and stereotypes that have divided the nations of our continent for centuries, and for better utilising the potential of the countries involved.
Ukraine, as an independent country with well-educated people, is eager to see its ambitions and goals fulfilled and is in a position to make full use of the opportunities created by a European perspective. I will do my utmost to foster ever closer relations between the EU and Ukraine.
