“Courage has a name, and that name is Ukraine. Courage has a face, the face of Ukrainian men and women who are standing up to Russian aggression”
Dressed in the colors of the Ukrainian flag, President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said in her State of the European Union address that the EU’s solidarity with Ukraine was unshakeable and sanctions against Russia were here to stay.
She praised Ukrainians for their bravery. “Ukraine stands strong because an entire country has fought street by street, home by home,” von der Leyen said.
“One lesson from this war is we should have listened to those who know Putin,” Ursula von der Leyen stressed and announced her visit to Ukraine.
Olena Zelenska, the wife of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, was present as von der Leyen’s guest of honor.
