Declaration of the European Union's Regions and Cities on Solidarity with Ukraine

The European Committee of the Regions Summit in Marseille on the 3-4 March 2022 with more than 2000 representatives of regional and local authorities of the European Union representing over one million mayors, local and regional elected political leaders, unanimously stand by the people of Ukraine, and agree the following:

Strongly condemn the unprovoked and unjustied military aggression by Russian President Putin against free Ukraine. This is a criminal act against the people of Ukraine, its sovereignty and its territorial integrity. Moreover, it is in breach of international law, our rules-based world order, and jeopardises the entire system of security and stability in Europe;

Ukrainian cities and regions are our direct partners: we, the mayors and regional leaders from all the 27 Member States of the European Union, reiterate our full solidarity with them; we stand ready to put forward to our respective governments and to the Council of the European Union their call for the hardest possible sanctions to be imposed on the government of the Russian Federation;

Call for immediate assistance to the citizens of Ukraine through the swift trigger of the EU Mechanism of Civil Protection for humanitarian assistance by the European Commission; we stand ready to mobilise cities and regions' capacities for humanitarian aid to be delivered to Ukraine at its mayors' request; we encourage Local and Regional Authorities to help the Ukrainian people forced to ee their homes across European cities and regions;

Call for EU support to be delivered to the EU's bordering regions with Ukraine in order to help the authorities to welcome and assist refugees coming from Ukraine, who should be granted refugee status under EU Asylum Law in accelerated emergency procedures;

The future of all Europeans can only rely on democracy and the rule of law as pillars of peace and prosperity; the European perspective oered to Ukraine, a sovereign country, its people, its cities and regions must be strengthened as a deterrent to any attempt to revert to the totalitarian past: no one should undermine the choice of people for freedom;

We salute the strength and courage of the Ukrainian people and are in full solidarity with them. We call on all local and regional governments in the European Union to support Ukraine in these times of need.

President Putin has to stop his war!

Free Ukraine in Europe!​​

Vitali Klitschko - honorary member

Against the background of the Russian war in Ukraine, the European Committee of the Regions reaffirms its unequivocal support for the cities and regions of Ukraine in defending their territorial integrity, respect for international law, freedom and the democratic values they share with EU citizens.

Considering the remarkable engagement on democratic values and struggle for citizens' lives in a crisis like this, it is with great eagerness that the European Committee of the Regions decided to assign the title of honorary member to Vitali KLITSCHKO, Mayor of Kyiv (Ukraine) and Head of the Association of Ukrainian Cities. The Mayor of Kiev illustrates the local politicians' essential role in the building blocks and foundations of democracy and providing immediate solutions to citizens.

The European Committee of the Regions is firmly committed to the city of Kyiv's freedom and prosperity, as well as those of all Ukrainian cities!​
