Anna Fotyga (ECR Group): Ukraine’s victory over Russia is imperative for Europe’s future

On the occasion of Ukraine's Independence Day on 24 August, ECR Group Foreign Affairs Coordinator Anna Fotyga says:

“Ukraine, with over a thousand years of rich history and vibrant culture and traditions, is an integral and indispensable part of Western civilization.

“Russia has repeatedly tried – in a barbaric manner, but always unsuccessfully – to destroy Ukraine’s statehood and to subjugate the nation. I am firmly convinced that the attempt we are seeing these days will end in Russia’s defeat. This defeat will be the decisive moment in the process of decolonisation and deimperialisation of the Russian Federation.

“Poland was the first country to recognise Ukraine’s independence. It is also among the first and most generous countries in supporting Ukraine.

“Together, we are building a new bilateral partnership and a new Europe, in which a victorious Ukraine will take its rightful place in the family of free, democratic and independent nations within the European Union and NATO.”
