EU Chief Says Ukraine Has ‘European Future’

Russia is facing “decay” because of ever more stringent sanctions from the West while Ukraine has a “European future,” European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen said on Friday, April 8 during a visit to Kyiv.

At a news conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, von der Leyen condemned civilian killings in the town of Bucha, near Kyiv. “Our humanity was shattered in Bucha,” she said, also condemning the deaths of dozens of people in a rocket attack on a train station in Kramatorsk in eastern Ukraine earlier on Friday as “appalling”.

“Your fight is also our fight. I’m here in Kyiv with you today to send a very strong message that the EU is by your side. We stand by your side,” she said, “We are mobilizing our economic power to make Russian President Vladimir Putin pay a very, very heavy price.”

Von der Leyen also made it clear that she believes this visit will be the starting point of Ukraine’s road to Europe and the European Union.
