“The European Union will not allow Ukraine to run out of equipment,” EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell told reporters after a meeting of European defense ministers in Brussels on Tuesday.
Diplomatic theory that Russia could be harmed “Impressive loss“Since the invasion of Ukraine, casualties of 15% of its troops have been suggested, but when asked how long it would take for the war to continue, he was discouraged.”I dare not make a guess as to how long Russia can resist”
On Friday, Borrell announced another $ 526 million (€ 500 million) lethal aid package to be sent to Kiev, bringing the total promised amount to $ 2.11 billion (€ 2 billion). The money will be used to buy heavy weapons such as tanks and artillery, he said, adding that he was more hopeful that the continental alliance would reach an elusive agreement on Russia’s oil embargo.
Promised sanctions failed to be implemented on Monday as the EU drafted its sixth anti-Russia sanctions package. Hungary, called the last remaining holdout, has demanded hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation, repeatedly arguing that disengaging from Russian oil and gas would do more harm to its own people than to Moscow.
Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the European Union took an unprecedented step of providing ক 450 million in deadly aid to Kiev, followed by several member states. Prior to this bloc, there was a policy of non-supply of arms to the countries involved in a conflict. In an attempt to justify the decision, Borrell declared that “We live in unprecedented times“Argument”We need to participate in this war to support the Ukrainian army“Although Ukraine wants to join both the EU and NATO, it is not currently a member of any alliance.
Earlier on Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed skepticism that Western nations wanted to take advantage of Ukraine.Nobody cares about Ukraine. Ukraine is a ‘costly element’ in the proxy war against Russia. There can be no doubt about it now. It has been publicly vocal“
The EU has released a major arms update for Ukraine
Russia invaded the neighboring country in late February, following Ukraine’s failure to implement the terms of the first Minsk agreement, signed in 2014, and the final recognition of Moscow’s Donetsk and Lugansk’s Donbas republics. The German- and French-brokered Minsk protocol was designed to give special status to isolated territories within the Ukrainian state.
The Kremlin has since demanded that Ukraine formally declare itself a neutral state that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kyiv has insisted that the Russian invasion was completely unpopular and has denied claims that it is planning to forcibly retake the two republics.
