Head of European Parliament Roberta Metsola arrives in Ukraine

KYIV. March 4 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Head of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola arrived in Ukraine late Friday evening.

“Good to be back in Ukraine. With those brave people who inspired the world. With those heroes who refuse to give in. With those who sacrificed everything for our values. With Europeans whose home is in our European Union,” Metsola wrote on Twitter on Saturday night.

“Ukraine’s future is as a member of the European Union,” she stressed.

Metsola also met with Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Ruslan Stefanchuk.

“Great seeing my friend Ruslan Stefanchuk again. Cooperation between the European and Ukrainian Parliaments will only grow stronger,” the head of the European Parliament said.

In turn, Stefanchuk stressed that the European Parliament is undoubtedly at the forefront of Ukraine’s support.

The MP added that during the meeting the parties discussed sanctions against the Russian Federation, noting that “all opportunities to circumvent restrictions should be stopped.”

Stefanchuk also thanked the European Union for financial support, for macro-financial assistance.

In addition, the head of the Ukrainian parliament raised the topic of China’s proposals for the so-called “peace treaty.”

“I emphasized that there is a peace formula proposed by President of Ukraine Zelenskyy. And we call on the world to support this initiative,” Stefanchuk summed up.
