Miniature of the Independence Monument in Kyiv unveiled at Mini-Europe park in Brussels to show solidarity with Ukraine
Ukraine became the first non-EU country whose installation appeared at the park at Mini-Europe — a tourist attraction in Brussels featuring miniature versions of European landmarks.
Four new Ukraine-themed scenes were unveiled. The first Mini-Europe scene features Ukrainian and European flags flying next to the Independence Monument on Maidan Square in Kyiv. The second shows Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy handing in an application for membership in the European Union to Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. Another shows Belgium aid convoys on their way to Ukraine, and finally, there is a scene featuring Ukrainian refugees arriving at the Polish border.
The initiative was implemented thanks to the Embassy of Ukraine in Belgium and the management of the “Mini Europe” park.
“This monument is the first installation from a non-EU country. It is very symbolic and means that Ukraine will join the EU soon,” said Natalia Anoshina, Charge d’Affaires of Ukraine in Belgium, to European Pravda.
She added the park placed the Ukrainian miniature as a sign of solidarity with Ukraine and support in the fight against the Russian aggressor.
