“Today, the Mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, signed the Memorandum on the twinning of our cities. Madrid became the first Spanish sister city of Kyiv. This is a historic event for our cities. It was formalised during the historic NATO summit, which is taking place these days in Madrid,” Vitaliy Klitschko wrote. “I am grateful to our Western partners, our Spanish partners for supporting Ukraine in this critical time of need. I believe that our cooperation with Madrid will be effective and useful for our capitals. Today, Madrid accepts refugees from Ukraine and provides humanitarian aid to Kyiv and Ukraine. We also discussed many projects that we plan to jointly implement in the Ukrainian and Spanish capitals.”
In March, the Ministry for Development of Communities and Territories of Ukraine initiated the International Marathon of Local Governments aimed at drawing the attention of the municipalities around the world to the tragedy of Ukrainian municipalities and boosting the process of establishing sisterly relations.
