Borrell voiced another 500 million to strengthen Ukraine with military equipment

Europe has a finger on the pulse with Russia after the new economic measures of the Kremlin, which consist in cutting off gas supplies. Twenty-seven agreed on a new economic package to strengthen Ukraine with military equipment. Yes, this was confirmed by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell, Eurogroup will allocate another 500 million euros to finance arms supplies to Ukraine, another sign that the European bloc continues to support Kyiv in the face of a Russian invasion.

Almost two months after the start of the Russian offensive, the head of European diplomacy proposed another round of 500 million, thus EU raises up to 2 billion euros funds to arm Ukraine in the midst of a conflict, which are channeled through the European Peace Mechanism. “These 500 million will be used for heavy weapons such as armored vehicles, tanks, heavy artillery, ammunition…things that are needed in this type of war,” the High Representative stressed ahead of the G7 Foreign Ministers meeting in Berlin, where you requested “new impetus” for support militarily to the Ukrainian authorities, but ruled out sending fighter jets.

With this tool, the EU countries pay for the delivery of military equipment to Kyiv to respond to the aggression ordered by Moscow, an unprecedented measure of support for the Ukrainian army, with which Spain has so far supplied weapons worth 21 million euros. Borrell articulated this statement in European politics to double down on Kyiv’s support. “More of the same,” he pointed out, betting on approving new economic sanctions, working to isolate Russia internationally, countering disinformation about the impact of the war on energy and food security, and form a united international front in support of Ukraine.

“We will have an agreement on oil”

Regarding the sixth round of sanctions against Russia for invading a neighboring country, which includes an embargo on Russian oil and negotiations between the “twenty-seven” have been going on for several weeks, the former Spanish minister hopes that he will approve them, although he did not speak about the timing . “I’m sure we’ll have an agreement. We need this agreement, and we will have it. We must get rid of our dependence on Russian oil,” he said, to qualify this, however, it is necessary to understand the circumstances of all member states in order to take this important step in energy matters.

So, he repeated that if an agreement at the level of ambassadors in the EU is not reached, then on Monday at the Foreign Affairs Council he will seek to ensure that industry ministers give a “political impetus.” At the moment, work continues at the level of ambassadors and with regional contacts with the countries of the East, who are looking for ways adapt to a veto on Russian oil.
