2. Year 2022 Council Meetings agenda (proposal) How to approach it: we need to set up two meetings at least. We could have this high level plan
- April 23rd-24th
- Sept 17th-18th
- Dec- 3rd-4th

No objections.

3. Situation in the Ukraine
Taking political statements is always problematic, because we are an executive organ. Anyway we did in the past.
Mikuláš is talking about last public speech of Russian President: his feeling is that we should consider to have a statement that condams the violation of International laws.

I am in favour of discussing the Ukraine problem. But then we should also discuss the whole world order, because the Ukraine problem is only a symptom.
In my opinion, completely unsuitable for a board meeting.
We can invite to a PPEU-wide discussion.
But we should write a blogpost, because international law has been questioned.

I second Bastian comment and be more focus on the problem that this issue is putting on European playground
Jan is talking about his experience and showing a map that represent the complicated situation of Ukraine history
Cédric would like to second Jan
I would propose not to have a statement right now but make a proposal for a statement
We can open a pad a try to make a statement, but we can't discuss with all members

- should we have a working group to prepare a kind of statement regarding the situation?
Yes: Cédric, Petr, Bastian, Mikuláš, Jan, Florie
No: Alessandro

We will have a working group about this topic

- should we the statement approved by the board or the Council?
Bastian points out that it makes no sense to vote on this, because right now Coucil cannot vote on it
Cédric totally disagree with Bastian (so did Florie)
We can set up a method to let the Council Member votes on this topic
Bastian reminds that we do not have any kind of this procedure in our current Statutes


Previous vote is cancelled.

- we will show the result of working group on the council and let it express its will. Should it be binding?

Yes: Mikuláš, Alessandro, Cédric, Florie, Petr, Jan
Abstain: Bastian

Bastian would like to add a point for next Board Meeting, regarding Czech EU Presidency
Procedural motion: let's drop the agenda point 4-5-6

4. New blockchain working group Dropped

5. Report from the working groups Petr is asking to be in the loop in order to know how all mailing lists are working
Also he asked to have access to medias (i.e. Twitter account)
