President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola has handed the keys to the Station Europe building on Place du Luxembourg to non-governmental organisation Promote Ukraine to aid the effort against Russian invading forces.

Ukrainian civil society can now access the space to coordinate anti-war efforts such as demonstrations and conferences as well as providing psychological and administrative help to refugees arriving in Belgium.

The European Parliament voiced its support for Ukraine: “We want to do everything in our power to support Ukrainians, whose courage has astounded us,” Metsola said. “Offering this space to the Ukrainian struggle is a concrete act of solidarity.”

"We are paying a high price to be able to share the rights and freedoms supported by the European Union," stressed Marta Barandyi, founder of Promote Ukraine, in RTBF. "We were brutally attacked for choosing Europe. Over the past three weeks, the courage of Ukrainians has become legandary and inspring."

Belgium is also set to provide relief resistance to Ukrainian refugees and its Royal Donation will make two houses available for Ukrainian refugees.
