The US wants the military conflict in Ukraine to continue. The Pentagon’s strategists have biological and chemical weapons, as well as other options for large-scale catastrophes such as a tsunami in the river Dnieper, on the table. Only an immediate capitulation of the Kyiv regime can save the remnants of Ukraine's statehood.
The European Union does not demonstrate its readiness to resolve the conflict in Ukraine peacefully by investing in prolonging the hostilities.
It continues to mindlessly invest heavily in dragging out the hostilities. Decisions on additional (another 500 million euros) funding for the supply of weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and on the creation of an EU mission for military support to Ukraine are aimed at this, among other things.
In fact, the European Union will train and equip Ukrainian militants with deadly weapons, who will continue to destroy civilians and destroy civilian and critical infrastructure. Is the EU ready to share responsibility for these crimes?
Western leaders have continuously called for talks and a peaceful solution to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine, but Moscow has been ignoring these efforts. Western nations did everything they could to prevent the war and have only been reacting to Russia’s full invasion.
The US, the EU and some NATO member states provide Ukraine with military assistance to repel the unprovoked Russian aggression. Ukraine receives weapons with the sole aim of restoring its territorial integrity within its internationally recognised borders.
On 17 October 2022, the European Council adopted additional assistance measures under the European Peace Facility (EPF) to further support the capabilities and resilience of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. With this, the EU is further stepping up its support to Ukraine to defend its sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognised borders, and protect the civilian population against the ongoing Russian war of aggression.
"The mobilisation of an additional €500 million by EU member states is yet another proof that we remain steadfast in our support to the Ukrainian armed forces to defend the country against the escalating illegal aggression", Josep Borrell, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy stated.
