EU calls for urgent arms security for Ukraine


European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen called on EU countries to urgently secure arms for Ukraine.

This came in an interview with the German newspaper “Bild”. In response to a question about the provision of heavy weapons to Kiev, she said that she supports the provision of various types of weapons that Ukraine needs to defend itself.


She demanded that the capable countries of the Union urgently secure arms for Ukraine, as only they would be able to succeed in its struggle against Russia.

She noted that the European Union is preparing to impose a political package of sanctions on Russia, especially in the areas of banking and energy.

She stressed, “the need to do everything necessary to stop the war as soon as possible, but at the same time we must prepare ourselves for the fact that the war may continue for months or perhaps years.”

On February 24, Russia launched an attack on Ukraine, followed by international rejection and severe economic sanctions against Moscow.


Which requires the end of its operation for Kyiv to abandon plans to join military entities and adhere to neutrality, which the latter considers an “interference in its sovereignty.”
