This week – from Monday to Thursday – the European Parliament holds the ‘Ukraine Solidarity Days’ to show its support for Ukraine’s parliament following the Russian invasion.
Different events will take place in the European Parliament in Brussels. These include discussions on the political and humanitarian situation in Ukraine, as well as plenary debates. Participants expected to address MEPs – in-person or remotely – include Verkhovna Rada Speaker Ruslan Stefanchuk, European Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič and former European Parliament President Pat Cox.
The Ukraine Solidarity Days also encompass outreach to young people and civil society in Ukraine, as well as reporting from and interaction with Sakharov Prize laureate Lorent Saleh from the Polish-Ukrainian border.
Earlier, the European Parliament launched a website highlighting its cooperation with the Ukrainian Parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, and provided the Station Europe building for the Ukrainian civil society hub.
