“Ukraine’s experience is important in the modern global context,
first of all, as an example of peaceful and stable development of
international relations and avoiding ethnic and religious conflicts in
the period of the establishment of a state system,” the president said
while opening the International Summit for Protection of National
Minorities “Ukraine’s Experience for the World” in Kyiv on Tuesday, Oct. 2.
The president said Ukraine has the necessary conditions for development of cultural variety for all nations without exceptions.
“Today cultural variety is a real value of the Ukrainian society, a
ticket to its unity, a barrier to development of xenophobia and
extremism, which are becoming more and more widespread phenomena in
various part of the world today,” Yanukovych said.
