Заявления Верховного Представителя ЕС Жозепа Боррелля

Уже больше месяца коронавирус держит Европу в своих тисках. И хотя мы каждый день прилагаем все усилия для борьбы с этим кризисом во всех его проявлениях, полезно взглянуть на ситуацию под другим углом и задуматься над тем, какой стала повседневная жизнь с COVID-19 в Европе и во всем мире и как вирус повлияет на наше общество.

Европейский Союз делает все возможное для преодоления кризиса #coronavirus и его последствий. Именно сейчас мы должны продемонстрировать, что в действительности означает Европейская и глобальная солидарность. Эти беспрецедентные события требуют беспрецедентных международных действий.

«Вирус COVID-19 изменит наш мир. Когда закончится этот кризис, пока неизвестно, но ясно одно: к тому времени наш мир сильно изменится. Насколько — будет зависеть от решений, которые мы примем сегодня». (Жозеп Боррель)
