Remarks by President Charles Michel at the press conference following his meeting with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv

Last year, I had the occasion to come to Ukraine three times.  And exactly one year ago, in March last year, we went together to the Donbas.  And there, I said “Russia is not a mediator”.  I said “Russia is party to the conflict”.  And the situation today is showing that I was right.

This morning, I went to Borodyanka to witness with my own eyes the situation on the ground. I met the people. There are no words to explain what I feel, not as President of the European Council, but as a father, as a human being. These are atrocities. These are war crimes. They must be punished. It will be punished. They must pay for what they have done there, and in many other cities and other locations in Ukraine.

Right now, like you, I think of the people, the soldiers, but also the civilians in the Donbas, in Mariupol and in other cities who are fighting for their lives, who are fighting for the sovereignty of Ukraine.  And I know very well, they are fighting for our European values, for freedom, for democratic principles.
