A brave Roberta Metsola, in Kyiv, told all Ukrainians “We will continue to take care of your families who have been forced to flee, until they can safely return.”
Dear Ukrainian friends,— Roberta Metsola (@EP_President) April 1, 2022
Soon we will help you rebuild your cities and towns.

“On my way to Kyiv,” tweeted Metsola this morning.
Two days ago she was honouring David Maria Sassoli by unveiling, together with his wife, his picture in a prominent place of the European Parliament.
With a very busy schedule, Metsola forces on her agenda a trip to the most talked about place in the world right now and “will pass a message of support and hope on behalf of the European Parliament.” Metsola’s spokesperson Jüri Laas told Politico.
Metsola’s way of handling issues is making history, now being the first president of an EU institution brave enough to visit the Ukrainian capital since Russia launched its war on February 24.
“I invite all friends of Ukraine to visit Kyiv,” Zelenskyy said in a video posted on social media, before adding: “It can be dangerous here. Because our sky is not yet closed to Russian missiles and planes.”
