The long- standing academic relationships between the European Public Law Organization and the State University of Mariupol have been strenthened and expanded with the visit of Professor Spyridon Flogaitis, EPLO Director, to Ukraine and the important meetings that took place in his capacity as a representative of a major scientific International insitution. Indeed, the University’s Senate awarded in an official ceremony the title of Honorary Doctor of the State University of Mariupol to Professor Spyridon Flogaitis, Director of the EPLO, honoring his work and the EPLO.

Mr Flogaitis’ trip to Ukraine included discussions with the Ambassador of Greece to Ukraine, Mr. Georgios Poukamisas, and visits to the EPLO Branch at the State University of Mariupol, the EU Information Center in Ukraine, the Library of Greek Studies "Anastasios G. Leventis" the Institute of Greek-Ukrainian Studies and the Greek Village of Mariupol.
