These last days saw again a series of indiscriminate strikes by Russia against people in Ukraine. We saw how residential buildings were targeted. Women, children massacred. The images of Dnipro will haunt forever all those who saw them - all those who were forced to live through them.
The bravery and resilience of the Ukrainian people should be an example to all. They have shown the world that might does not equal right. That terror will not break Ukrainian spirits. We will continue, Europe will continue to support Ukraine - politically, humanitarianly, militarily and financially. The €18 billion financial package that this House voted for will begin to be disbursed this week. Our Generators of Hope campaign is in full swing with towns, villages, cities all doing their best to help power Ukraine. I am so proud of our response and I know that we will stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes.
