“We will help you to reconstruct your country, and we will walk together with you on your European path” Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission
Head of the European Commission (EC) Ursula von der Leyen said that the EU has to mobilize all available resources for the reconstruction of Ukraine, including local and regional cooperation.
“Our cities and regions have experience and expertise when it comes to rebuilding and managing the daily lives of citizens. And we want to share this expertise with you. Peer-to-peer cooperation at all local and regional levels will allow us to speed up Ukraine’s reconstruction,” she said.
According to Ursula von der Leyen, the EU will expand exponentially the number of twin cities and twin regions between two peoples.
“The entire EU stands behind Ukraine, now and after you have prevailed and overcome this horrible war. We will help you to reconstruct your country, and we will walk together with you on your European path,” she said.
