EES EU Live (3/2022) – The Digital Senator's Briefing
Video Live Talk of the European Economic Senate (EES) with live feed from Kiev, March 1, 2022
Due to the current developments in Ukraine, the programme was changed. The focus of our EES Live was on the current situation in Ukraine and the associated consequences.
We organised a live link-up to Kiev. Our senator Vasil Danyliv as well as Lilia Heitz, the wife of our office manager in Brussels, our Ukrainian EES contacts person Larissa Apasova and our partners from Ukrainian Taxpayers association joined our event from Kiev. This gave us an immediate insight into the situation. In addition, we the EES are in the process of organising aid and want to know what is needed most.
The special event on "Self-employment & Entrepreneurship" will be postponed.
