After Ukraine became a candidate for EU membership, the EU flag was installed in the plenary hall of the Ukrainian parliament in a significant symbolic moment.

On Friday, July 1, the European Union flag was hoisted inside the main chamber of the Ukrainian Rada, or parliament, in Kyiv.

A video posted by the European Union’s Ambassador to Ukraine, Matti Maasikas, showed the entire parliament applauding as the flag was carried through the chamber.

The symbolic moment occurred on the same day that European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen addressed the Rada.

“Ukraine now has a clear European perspective and is a candidate for membership in the EU,” said Von der Leyen.

Europe will stand by Ukraine for as long as necessary And we will not stop until you win, stressed Matti Maasikas.
