On the occasion of International Romani Day on 8 April, the leaders of Romani groups from Chop, Perechin, Svaliava, Uzhhorod and Vinohradiv met with guests, journalists and representatives of the regional administration at the Transcarpathian National Minorities Cultural Center. In a joint declaration, the Transcarpathian Romani organizations stated their opposition to manifestations of discrimination and separatist tendencies, expressing their fears of an imminent military invasion.    

The Roma expressed their support for a Europe-oriented, united Ukraine. "No one wants war, not in Russia and not in Ukraine. We want to live in a country that will honor the rights of all nationalities enshrined in the Ukrainian Constitution," the joint declaration reads; the meeting ended with a wreath being laid on the surface of the Uzh River and candles being lit to symbolize unity.
