Ukrainian civil society hub opens in European Parliament.

The European Parliament provided Ukraine with a location for the operation of the Ukrainiancivil society hub, which was opened on Thursday in Brussels.

According to an Interfax-Ukraine's own correspondent, the opening ceremony of the hub, which is located in the building of the European Parliament in the so-called "Station of Europe" on Luxembourg Square in Brussels, was attended by President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola, Ukrainian Civil Society Coordinator Natalia Melnyk, Representative of Ukraine to the European Union, Ambassador Vsevolod Chentsov and Head of NGO Promote Ukraine Marta Barandyi.

"In these days of brutal attack, the European Parliament supports Ukraine, expresses its solidarity and commitment to stand next to the Ukrainian people in your resistance to the enemies who have seized your territory. We promise to do everything in our power to ensure that the EP is on the front line to help Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in any way we can. We have decided to open our home to Ukrainian civil society and we have decided to call it the Ukrainian Hub," Metsola said.

In turn, Melnyk thanked the European Parliament, the President of the European Parliament and MEPs for their support.

"We understand that these days we are standing side by side. What you are doing for Ukraine, especially these days, goes far beyond the traditional responsibility of the European Parliament. We appreciate that you host us in your home," she said.

According to Barandyi, the created Ukrainian Hub will serve as a communication platform for Ukrainian resistance and European support.

"We invite you here with your initiatives. We also plan to organize press conferences, conferences, round tables, exhibitions, and more, so that you can feel the spirit of our brave nation," she said.

After opening remarks, Metsola presented the Ukrainian side with symbolic keys tied with ribbons – symbols of Ukraine and the European Union. The participants also honored those who had died in the war with a minute of silence.
