Donald Tusk will meet with the Vice-President of Ukraine.

“If you are against the rule of law and independent judiciary, if you place the state and the nation against, or above, the freedom and dignity of the individual, if you wish for conflict and divisions globally and inside the European Union, if you support Putin and attack Ukraine, if you are in favor of the aggressor and against the victim, you are not a Christian Democrat. If you want to replace the Western model of liberal democracy with an Eastern model of “authoritarian democracy,” you are not a Christian Democrat. We all want to win the upcoming elections. But let us remember that at stake in these elections are not benefits and jobs, but the protection of our fundamental values. Because without them, our victory will make no sense,” Tusk said at the Summit of the European People’s Party Congress in Helsinki.
