Hello dear friends!
Taipei – Jan. 24, 2023. Kira Rudik, Member of Parliament of Ukraine and leader of Ukraine’s Holos Party, said Monday (January 23) that she will visit Taiwan later this year to promote the establishment of a representative office in the country.
The trip, expected in the spring, will be her second to Taiwan, following her visit in October 2022. The plan to set up an office may not materialize anytime soon, but progress is being made, she told Taiwanese news agency CNA.
Rudik said it is important to let the public know about the support and assistance Taiwan has pledged to the war-torn country. Members of her party will continue to communicate with the public and local governments about Taiwan’s aid on social media and TV, and she will address Parliament on the issue next week.
The parliamentarian visited parliament and met with President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) during her trip in October, when Tsai expressed her determination to stand with Ukraine and Lithuania against authoritarian expansion.
Facing ongoing Russian attacks on Ukraine’s power grid, Taiwan donated US$1 million in December and pledged another US$2 million this month for procurement of power generation equipment. Generators supplied by Taiwan are also arriving in Ukraine, which Rudik says has drawn the ire of the Chinese embassy.
