“Faces of European Solidarity” campaign, launched by European Commission Representation

The European Commission Representation in Romania launched on Friday the communication campaign “Faces of European Solidarity” which consists of an exhibition of photographs by some photojournalists capturing the solidarity of Romanians with those who left Ukraine following the Russian invasion.

“The campaign takes place in the context of the anniversary of the signing of the Schuman Declaration on May 9, 1950, and will consist of an exhibition of photographs by photojournalists (Bogdan Buda, Alex Nicodim, Sabin Cirstoveanu, Adriana Neagoe, Paul Ursachi, Ilona Andrei, Casian Mitu, Silviu Filip, George Calin, Octav Ganea) documenting the solidarity of Romanians with those who left Ukraine following the Russian invasion, the care and warmth with which Ukrainian citizens were received by Romanians in border towns, in the refugee centers and in their homes”, shows a release sent on Friday to AGERPRES.

The head of the European Commission Representation in Romania, Ramona Chiriac, stressed the importance of solidarity with Ukraine.

“15 years ago, Romania became a member of the European Union, part of the peace and solidarity project aimed at healing Europe from the wounds of war and building a better future together. Today, solidarity with Ukraine is at the heart of our actions”, said Ramona Chiriac, quoted in the release.

The campaign will run for a month, and the stories told through the photos can be watched by the general public on the underground, at Henri Coanda Airport in Bucharest, but also online, on the website and on the accounts of the European Commission in Romania on the social networks.

Europe Day marks the signing of an ambitious long-term peace plan in post-war Europe, which is seen as the beginning of what is now the European Union. The importance of peace efforts in Europe is all the more evident now, when we emphasize our unity and solidarity with Ukraine, the release said.

In May, the institutions of the European Union (EU) invite the general public to take part in a wide range of online and on-site activities in all EU member states, as well as at the headquarters of the EU institutions in Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg.

A Eurobarometer conducted in all EU member states, published on May 5, 2022, shows a broad consensus among EU citizens in favor of the Union’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Most Europeans believe that, since the beginning of the war, the EU has shown solidarity (79%), with its reaction characterized by unity (63%) and speed (58%).

The vast majority of respondents are in favor of strong support for Ukraine and its people.

According to the survey, more than nine out of ten respondents (93%) approve of providing humanitarian support to those affected by the war. 88% of Europeans agree with the idea of accepting in the EU people fleeing war. 80% approve of financial support for Ukraine.
