Sevastopol seems to be promoted within the EU structures. Somehow… Perhaps…
A year and 5 months ago Sevastopol signed a joint communique appointing the “EU-Ukraine business council” to represent and promote its interests within the EU Institutions.
EU-UBC declared that it” is deeply appreciative of this great honour to be of assistance to Sevastopol and will act in the interests of the Sevastopol City State Administration to promote initiatives for the economic and social development of the region, helping to produce a communications and lobbying strategy for Sevastopol with the EU institutions and potential investors.”
Has something changed for Sevastopol since February 28th, 2009?
Well, EU-UBC accounted for John Grogan, Chairman of All Party Parliamentarian Delegation on Ukraine in the House of Commons visit to Sevastopol on the 26th of August 2009.
So what? Has he brought the EU investments to Sevastopol? Why EU-UBC didn’t report about that as an example of their successful work on behalf of Sevastopol?
