Mogherini to launch new communication campaign in Kyiv
High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini is going to launch a new communication campaign called "Moving Forward Together."
"While I am in Kyiv, I will launch a new communication campaign called 'Moving Forward Together,' which is precisely aimed at illustrating what our Association Agreement means for Ukrainians and why we are committed to it," Mogherini told UNIAN pending her two-day visit to Kyiv, which started on March 11.
"People need to be aware of the false information that is out there about our relationship, but we also must be – and are being – proactive in making sure that people have access to the facts in the first place," she said.
According to her, to inform about disinformation is partly the mission of the East StratCom Task Force. "The reality is that the European Union needs to better communicate what it is and what it is doing, not only to its citizens but also beyond our borders. Taking Ukraine as an example: the Ukrainian people and our own citizens need to know about the work we do together to support reforms, to create opportunities for youth, to increase business growth, in support of human rights and fundamental freedoms, and of course the EU's commitment to your country's independence and territorial integrity," she said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, during her visit to Kyiv, Mogherini is to meet with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman.
