We continue to create a common platform for NGOs. The roundtable in Zaporizhzhia was the first in the new year of 2022, and our team is already preparing the next meetings. The public should effectively influence the quality of policy in the country, and we will create a platform for its unification.
– said Pavlo Yantsen, chairman of the “Free Nation” public movement.
Ihor Gurin, co-founder of the “Free Nation” public movement, noted the potential of civil society in the Cossack region:
We did not even expect that so many organizations would attend the roundtable in Zaporizhzhia, and they were so different! We talked to representatives of the SaveFOP movement, climate change activists, railroad workers, scientists, and ATO/JFO veterans. These are our compatriots who also want change.
We continue to unite Ukraine. Today, the Cossack region of Zaporizhzhia has firmly stated that it is also for unification!
– said Ilya Fedorenko, Deputy Chairman of the Board of the “Constitutional and Legal Congress”, after the meeting.

The roundtable in Zaporizhzhia was attended by about 50 civil society organizations, charitable foundations, and representatives of trade unions.
