Yana Toom: the most important thing we did was...


Europabevægelsen, the Danish European Movement, asked MEP Yana Toom what the most important things the European Union did this year were.

Yana answered with a short, 1 min video, as requested:

„I believe that the most important and historical thing for us was the activation of the Temporary Protection Directive. It was a ‘sleeping’ directive that lay somewhere on the table in the European Commission. In fact, we never activated it before Russian aggression against Ukraine. Now, when we have 18% of the Ukrainian population inside the European Union, we just had to do something. And we did.”
