At the time of my visit and as I write this report, the United Kingdom is absorbed in the Referendum campaign [...]Despite my best efforts to keep to the topic on the agenda, the students always and without exception, brought discussions back to the British question. [...]I met with students studying EU competition law, Diplomatic and consular law, the Institutions of the EU and PHD students, from all of whom I had a warm and friendly welcome. Professor Dagmara Kornobis- Romanowska from the John Monnet Team was my host and I am most grateful for her hospitality and friendship and for all the organisation."

"For the second year in a row the University was organizing together with other European and Ukrainian institutions an Eastern Platform seminar [...]There appeared to be considerable interest. Some 60-70 students attended the seminar.There was abundant proof that the Erasmus Program is popular[...]I spoke about the topical issues affecting the European Union.The refugee crises [...]The referendum in the U.K. on Brexit equally proved to be a subject for lively discussion. And of course the threat of terrorism did not pass unmentioned[...]But as the discussion was lively and the interest high it was very worthwhile to be present at this seminar in this usually not too well-trodden part of the European Union."
