I always say that it is difficult to find a people who are so similar in their state of mind to Georgian. You also love freedom, hospitality. You have a great youth, and I believe in your bright future. I like the holiday of Europe Day and the very idea of European integration. For our country, accession to the EU has made many positive changes. Firstly, for our youth, the borders were opened and they went to other countries to see how they live and work there in order to implement successful practices in our country. I believe in the bright future of Ukraine and I am proud of your country," says Gela Dumbadze.

Vinnytsia and the Polish city of Kielce have a friendly relationship. Therefore, traditionally for a holiday in Vinnytsia, delegations come from this sister city. This year, the Deputy President of the city of Kielce Czeslav Gruszewski celebrated the Europe Day together with the Vinnytsia people. "I am for the first time in Vinnytsia and in Ukraine in general. However, we have been working closely together for many years, and in the last 15 years, our cooperation has only intensified. Due to the fact that you have the Consulate General of Poland, we have become even closer. Vinnytsia and Kielce have much in common, we have very similar languages," said Czeslav Gruszewski.
