Monday 4 July:  The Edinburgh community were honoured to receive a visit from the Ukrainian Ambassador to the UK, Natalia Galibarenko, whilst she was on a diplomatic visit to Edinburgh.

During her time in Edinburgh she attended the opening of the Scottish Parliament and had meetings with members of the Scottish Government and Edinburgh City Council.

We were delighted she took time out of her busy schedule to meet us. 

The Ambassador was given a traditional Ukrainian welcome of bread and salt at our Community Centre  She then she spoke to us of about her visit to the city of Edinburgh and discussed ways in which Ukrainians in Scotland could continue to support Ukraine and Ukrainian interests.  

She was given a brief tour of the AUGB Branch premises and our facilities and delighted everyone with her patience during a photo shoot to record the occasion of her visit.
