President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky published an appeal on the occasion of Europe Day, in which he said that building a successful Europe cannot be considered complete without Ukraine. President’s Telegram channel reports.
So, the head of state hopes that this day will surely come and our state will be a full part of the European family.
“This year, our European friends celebrated the 70th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration, with which the European Union actually began its reckoning. Robert Schuman’s words are still relevant today: Europe will not be built immediately or according to a single plan. Building a united, prosperous and successful Europe continues. It is obvious to me that this process cannot be considered completed without Ukraine," Zelensky said.
The President noted that the phrase "Ukraine is Europe" should not be just a formal slogan, which is recalled once a year. This should be part of our consciousness.
"I have always said that Europe is first of all a way of thinking. Europe begins with each of us. With each citizen. With the observance of laws, payment of taxes, protection of democratic values and civil society, free expression of will, freedom of speech, thought and religion, equality and respect. From the "allergy" to taking or giving bribes, from a properly parked car and a cigarette butt thrown into the trash. Let's make sure that we have Europe Day every day," Zelensky said.
As we reported before, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky noted that from May 22 another mitigation of the lockdown will take place, not its abolishing as he reminded during the address to the Ukrainians
