The EU Ratified the Provision of €500 Mln in Military Aid to Ukraine

As of January 23, EU military and non-lethal aid to Ukraine increased by €3.6 bln.

On January 24, Josep Borrell announced the decision regarding the 7th package of military aid from the European Union for Ukraine: €500 in military support and €49 billion in support of the EUMAM training program for Ukrainian recruits. In a dialogue with the minister of foreign affairs, Dmytro Kuleba, the head of the European diplomacy, emphasized that the international support of our country will continue until the Russian aggression is stopped.

"We will continue our support to Ukraine. Ukraine must win this war. And we will support in the best possible way," Josep Borel.

Borel also made public the total value of all military, humanitarian and social aid that the European Union provided to Ukraine — €49 billion.

"Almost 50 billion. This means that the European Union, the EU member states and institutions together take the first place in supporting Ukraine," Mr Borrell.

The diplomat also summarized Russia's pseudo-attempts to end the war.

"We haven't seen any real willingness from Russia for a just and lasting peace," said Borrell, who personally was in Bucha, Irpin and Borodyanka.

Reuters experts say that the allocation of the seventh tranche of the EU is connected with the temporary non-delivery of Leopards.
