The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) continues to support Ukraine and adopted another resolution in support of Kyiv ahead of the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion.
In particular, the document calls for:
- Rapid process of Ukraine’s accession to the EU with full compliance with enlargement principles
- Targeted support for Ukraine’s reconstruction and restoration
- Creation of a special international tribunal on crimes of aggression against Ukraine
The EESC emphasises that if Ukraine were to lose the war against Russia, it would be catastrophic for democracy worldwide. Accordingly, the EU must do everything in its power to prevent “Ukraine fatigue”. The European Union has the moral obligation to support Ukraine for as long and with whatever it takes, including with humanitarian aid and infrastructure.
“We are still determined to demonstrate our solidarity with the people of Ukraine and civil society in general through concrete actions. We are determined to support Ukraine in all its post-war efforts to ensure that the country rises from the ashes stronger, greener, more resilient and more sustainable,” reads the Committee’s statement.
As a reminder, this is the third EESC resolution adopted in support of Ukraine over the past year.
