Europe News Desk!!! Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has signed an order to celebrate Europe Day on May 9 on the lines of the European Union (EU). In an announcement on Monday, he said May 8 would now officially be Victory Day, as marked in many countries around the world. Many years ago, the tradition of celebrating Europe Day was started on our continent to establish peace and unity, the President said in a social media post. Today, unity on our continent brings us closer to celebrating our first day of peace. Every year on May 9, we will remember the unity of all European peoples who destroyed Nazism and will defeat Russification. It will be the day of Europe, which has supported Ukraine for all nine years of aggression and 439 days of full-scale aggression.
This will be the day of Europe, which helps us to fight in all directions. This will be the day of Europe – our Europe, which Ukraine has always supported, has and will continue to do. The European Commission has welcomed Ukraine’s decision to celebrate Europe Day. “We welcome Ukraine’s decision to celebrate May 9 as Europe Day,” Dana Spinent, spokeswoman and director of political communications for the European Commission, said in a tweet. It is a reflection of the European identity of the Ukrainian people. On Tuesday, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will visit Kiev, during which she is scheduled to hold talks with Zelensky.
