The 25 of February 2024 marks the second year of the Russian aggression on Ukraine. On this important date for Europe and the besieged country, the European federalists want to reiterate their support to Ukraine and its people. The Union of European Federalists remains committed to seeing a victorious Ukraine join the European Union.
Since the start of the conflict, the UEF stood beside Ukraine. On the day of the aggression, the UEF condemned “in the strongest possible terms the aggression [...] against Ukraine, a free and sovereign country in the heart of Europe.” On 4 March 2022, the UEF partnered in the Europe-wide gathering in support of Ukraine organised by its German section of Europa-Union Frankfurt. On this occasion, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy gave a moving speech and thanked the Europeans for their solidarity, while thousands of people gathered, at the same time, on major European city squares, such as in Frankfurt, Prague, Tbilisi, or Paris.
This year the UEF will participate and invite to join the march promoted by Promote Ukraine, at 11:00, on Metro Rogier, Brussels.
The European federalists will never forget that the fight of the Ukrainians for freedom is ours, and it is that of all of Europe.
Message from the main organiser Promote Ukraine
Two years of a full-scale invasion in Ukraine, two years of full-scale war in Europe. Such an anniversary was unthinkable in the 21st century, yet as time passes, the conflict slips from the focus of politics, media, and society.
The weight of this anniversary can't be overstated. Two years of death, loss, and resilience demand our attention and collective action! War cannot be tolerated, it cannot be forgotten, and it cannot be paused. We cannot accept war in Europe!
European values—our freedom, democracy, and respect for the law—are under threat from the barbaric russian invasion. It's not just on Ukrainian soil; russia aims to sow disruption and conflicts through European media, businesses, social networks, political cabinets, economic and energy space, and even culture. We must protect Europe! We must stand by Ukraine!
Join us in the Ukrainian march, a powerful commemoration on February 25 at 11:00 a.m. near the Rogier metro station in Brussels. Let's unite in solidarity, amplifying our voices to show unwavering support for freedom, democracy, and humanity.
Our march aligns with the critical upcoming European elections. The outcome is pivotal for Europe's future, its resistance against Russian aggression, and support for the Ukrainian people. It's a potent statement in the heart of Europe, reminding leaders and citizens that Ukraine's fate is tied to the broader European fight for democracy and human rights.
Come, join us, and bring your friends. Now, more than ever, Ukraine's victory depends on our collective voice. Let's ensure the second anniversary isn't just a reflection but a rallying cry for a future founded on freedom, democracy, and humanity.
Glory to Ukraine!
