Sandu: Summit at Ukraine's borders is sign of solidarity

The holding of the second summit of the European Political Community 20 km from the border with Ukraine is evidence of solidarity with the Ukrainian people.

This was stated by Moldovan President Maia Sandu at the summit in Chisinau, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Our decision to gather today at the second summit of the European Political Community just 20 km from the Ukrainian border demonstrates our solidarity with Ukraine and its people. Ukrainians are fighting for freedom, European values and the future of our continent," Sandu said.

According to her, Moldova has demonstrated solidarity, in particular by hosting Ukrainian refugees.

"But more needs to be done. This summit provides a platform to find solutions that we can all commit ourselves to in order to return peace to the continent, overcome the consequences of war and protect Europe," Sandu said.
