Head of State met with the delegation of the global parliamentary network

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with a delegation of the global parliamentary network United for Ukraine, which included representatives of the parliaments of 13 European countries and the European Parliament.

The Head of State noted that he was pleased to meet with friends of Ukraine who visit our country at such a crucial time and have been with it from the first moments of Russia's full-scale aggression.

"Thank you very much for your visit. It is an important signal of support. We are glad to have such wonderful partners who help our country not to lose its independence and the lives of our people. After all, people are our biggest priority," Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.

The President emphasized the importance of armed, diplomatic, and sanctions support from the European community and thanked for the decisions taken to recognize the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as genocide of the Ukrainian people.

The Head of State also emphasized the historic decision to grant Ukraine the status of a candidate for EU membership and support for our country's future membership in the EU.

"This motivates Ukrainians to live and the Armed Forces of Ukraine to defend the territorial integrity of the state on the battlefield," he said.

The President noted that today there is extremely strong support for Ukraine's membership in the EU and NATO, to which there is no alternative.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized that after the war, Ukraine would need reliable guarantees of security and non-recurrence of such aggression. In this regard, it is extremely important that as many countries as possible support the Ukrainian Peace Formula.
