It is time to turn the page on fossil fuels faster than previously expected.

The EU has to continue to deliver on EU citizens' expectations.


They are the founding mothers and fathers of our Union.

They dedicated their lives to bringing Europeans closer together.

And they all shared one common aspiration: peace.

Ahead of #EuropeDay and as the war in Ukraine rages on, we recall their legacy.

The Slovo building in Kharkiv is a landmark of Ukrainian history - an inspiring literary residence for writers from around the world.

Its façade has been damaged by Russian shelling, but word is adamant.
