More than ever, we stand firmly by Ukraine. Financially, economically, militarily, morally. Until the country is finally free," von der Leyen wrote.  

Background:

  • On Friday, media outlets cited their sources as saying that Ursula von der Leyen was planning to travel to Kyiv together with the Prime Minister of Belgium, which currently holds the EU Council presidency. 
  • This week, it was officially confirmed that Ursula von der Leyen was elected as the sole candidate from her political group, so if the European People's Party wins the European Parliament elections, she will be leading the European Commission again.
