Brussels Mayor Philippe Klose suggested organizing a forum and gathering potential investors who want to help Kyiv and Ukraine.
'Unfortunately, I cannot be with you personally today. The situation in Kyiv and Ukraine, the challenges that need to be quickly overcome, require my presence in Kyiv. For the first time, the forum is taking place outside Kyiv. And it is symbolic that the first foreign Kyiv investment forum is held in Brussels, in the heart of Europe because the people of Kyiv and all Ukrainians see their future in the European family,' Klitschko noted.

Today Ukrainians defend their European choice in a bloody war with the Russian aggressor, who came to Ukrainian soil, and also protect European values, peace and stability on the entire European continent, Klitschko stressed.
“Ukraine has been fighting and winning for more than nine months. Despite the numerical and military superiority of the enemy. Despite the total terror which Russia unleashed against Ukrainian civilians,” Kyiv Mayor said.
