The European Parliament President Roberta Metsola noted on November 23, 2022, that the European Parliament together with the Eurocities network, which includes more than 200 European cities, launched a mass campaign “Generators of Hope” to donate power generators and transformers to Ukraine.
According to this program, the largest cities in Europe will donate power generators to Ukraine to provide energy to the critical infrastructure facilities in Ukraine.
“The European Parliament and the EU have shown remarkable solidarity with Ukraine on the humanitarian, military and financial front. Now they need practical support to get through the winter. I call on all cities, towns and regions across Europe to join the Generators of Hope campaign,” noted Roberta Metsola.
According to Dario Nardella, Mayor of Florence and the President of Eurocities, this program will help Ukraine continue day-to-day lives in the cities.
“As Mayors, my colleagues and I know the importance of local services. By launching this direct call to action for cities to get together and help Ukraine by donating generators and transformers, we can help ensure that Ukraine’s cities will be able to manage their day-to-day lives in the best way possible. We must act immediately. Winter is upon us, there is no electricity and gas, and there is no time to waste,” emphasized Dario Nardella.
