On Tuesday, Paweł Kowal MEP was the first EU politician to join the EuroMaidan, a pro-European protest taking place in Kiev. For the last few days hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians throughout the whole country, as well as abroad, have been protesting against the decision of the Ukrainian government to postpone the signing of the Association Agreement with the EU.

During his speech he stated, that he would like the Ukrainians to live in the same way as the French or Germans. “Without you we cannot open the gates to Europe,” he said. The gathered crowd reacted enthusiastically to his words, chanting “Poland! Poland!” for a few minutes.

“If there is anything that can be done, it is coming here and sending out a message, that the Ukrainians should keep on fighting, they cannot be left alone” – added Kowal, highlighting the fact, that through his arrival he wished to express his support for the protesters.

Paweł Kowal is the chairman of the European Parliament delegation to Parliamentary Cooperation Committee EU-Ukraine and rapporteur of Foreign Affairs Committee on Eastern Partnership.
