President of the European People’s Party (EPP) Wilfried Martens has officially invited Yulia Tymoshenko to attend the upcoming EPP Summit, which will take place on March 23-24 in Brussels, according to Tymoshenko's official website.

"We will be very happy to see you among the summit participants, during which you, Yulia, will also have the opportunity to meet with the leaders of EU member states," he said in a telephone conversation with Yulia Tymoshenko, initiated by the EPP President.

Wilfried Martens expressed indignation over the actions by the Yanukovych government. "I am outraged by the actions of the ruling regime, which have nothing in common with democracy. I am calling to once again express my support for you personally and your political force, the Batkivshchyna Party, and its clear position on defending European values and the principles of democracy," he said.

Yulia Tymoshenko thanked Wilfried Martens for the support and solidarity, and stressed that the European choice remains a top priority for her political party.

"I appreciate the position and solidarity of the EPP and am proud that the Batkivshchyna Party is part of this most influential group. Your position, which has been expressed repeatedly in resolutions and statements at EPP summits and assemblies, is important not only for me personally, but for all of the Ukrainian people. I see your solidarity as support for Ukraine’s European perspective," Yulia Tymoshenko said.
