Klitschko emphasized that EPP had consistently supported Ukraine on its European path in the European parliament, as well as in member countries.
“EPP has always been a driving power for European integration of Ukraine. I appreciate such important support nowadays, when the future of our country is at stake. Integration with a big European family is our key goal. I am sure that Ukraine will become a full-fledged member of this family,” Klitschko said.
He stressed that Ukraine paid a high price for its European aspirations. But there is no way back. That is why thousands of Ukrainians are fighting for integrity of our country, its independence and peace in Ukraine. “Our meeting is taking place in Latvia, which overcame Soviet occupation, struggled for its independence and became a European state. It has chosen the EU and NATO, e. i. European values and security. Ukraine can repel the aggression and implement European standards,” UDAR leader said.
Also, a meeting between Vitali Klitschko and the EPP President, MEP Joseph Daul has been held.
Since 2013 UDAR Party has an observer status at the EPP.
