Scholz urges the EU countries. It’s about money for Ukraine

The head of the German government, Olaf Scholz, believes that EU countries are not providing enough support to Ukraine. He emphasizes that these must be increased.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called on European Union countries to provide more military support to Ukraine this year in the fight against Russian aggression. A full-scale war has been going on since February 24, 2022. For the time being, there is no military solution to this conflict in sight. Neither side achieves decisive victories, the war has become a war of positions.

Scholz’s profession

Scholz issued his statement on Monday after meeting Luxembourg’s new Prime Minister Luc Frieden in Berlin.

According to the German Chancellor, the arms deliveries to Ukraine planned so far by most EU member states are ‘in any case too small’. – That is why I call on our allies in the European Union to also step up their efforts for Ukraine – he added.

Olaf Scholz believes that the EU should have as accurate a picture as possible of what European partners will bring to support Ukraine this year at the latest at the next EU summit, which will take place on February 1.

– Europe must show that it is on the side of Ukraine, on the side of freedom, international law and European values ​​– the German politician emphasized.

The German Chancellor noted that his country is the largest donor of aid to Ukraine after the United States and has already allocated 8 billion euros by 2024 to supply Ukraine with weapons and military equipment, as well as humanitarian and financial aid.

With additional aid to Ukraine blocked in the US Congress and delays in approving a four-year, €50 billion aid plan for Kiev, the EU is increasingly calling for more active support to Kiev this year.

Last week, Polish Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski explained in detail why continued military support to Ukraine is in Europe’s interest and why the West should not talk about “fatigue with Ukraine” – the website Ukraińska Pravda recalls.
