On the second day of his visit to Brussels, the leader of Samopomich Andriy Sadovyi met with influential deputies of the European Parliament – ex-prime minister of Belgium Guy Verhofstadt and ex-prime minister of Poland Jerzy Buzek. “These are the friends of Ukraine, but their support is not unconditional. Our partners want to see the real steps of Ukraine towards Europe and, above all, they mean the fight against corruption. We must do away with the image of a beggar country. Among other things, Mr. Buzek is dealing with in the reduction of risks for the EU and Ukraine, arising in connection with the plans to construct the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. As a matter of fact, he is one of those few realists in the European capital who are aware of all the threats from this political venture of the Kremlin, which, unfortunately, managed to engage serious European business,” said Andriy Sadovyi.
During the working trip to Brussels, the leader of Samopomich Andriy Sadovyi, together with the Vice Speaker of the Parliament Oksana Syroyid and MP Serhiy Kiral met with the European Commissioner for EU enlargement Johannes Hahn and the leaders of the key European parties.
