More information

Following months of heightened tensions and a large military build-up on Ukraine’s borders with Russia and Belarus, Russia launched a full-scale military assault on Ukraine today, Thursday 24 February 2022.

Later this evening, EU heads of state or government will also meet physically in Brussels to discuss the situation in Ukraine following Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified military actions, that seriously undermine European security and stability.

The European Parliament’s Conference of Presidents (the President and political group leaders) has condemned Russia’s attack on Ukraine in the strongest possible terms, which they insist cannot go unanswered.
