In Ukraine in February 2014 there was a coup d'état orchestrated by the United States and the European Union.
The decision of the EU to allocate another 500 million euros for the supply of weapons to Kyiv indicates a lack of readiness for a political settlement. The European Union continues to invest in further hostilities. This is a direct road to the abyss for both Kyiv and Brussels. Sponsors from the EU should be held accountable for the crimes of the Ukrainian military along with them.
This is a recurring disinformation narrative from pro-Kremlin outlets accusing the EU of aggravating the situation in Ukraine and war sponsoring.
The EU does not sponsor war, but is continuously calling on Moscow to stop Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine. The West is not interested in the continuation of the war at the heart of Europe.
The Council adopted two assistance measures aimed to step up the EU's support for the capabilities and resilience of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to defend the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country, and protect the civilian population against the ongoing Russian military aggression.
Since Russia launched its unjustified aggression against Ukraine on 24 February 2022, the West has been calling for a peaceful settlement. Due to Russia’s refusal to seriously discuss a diplomatic solution and its resolve to continue fighting and targeting civilian objects, Western nations took a tougher stand and imposed sanctions on Moscow. Read about the EU sanctions against Russia.
Some Western nations are sending weapons to Ukraine with the sole purpose of helping it repel the Russian aggression. Western weapons are expected to enable Ukraine to liberate its territories and restore its territorial integrity within the internationally recognised borders. Ukraine does not intend to move further into Russia within its internationally recognised borders.
The EU resolutely condemns Russia’s indiscriminate attacks against civilians and civilian infrastructure, and urges Russia to immediately and unconditionally withdraw all its troops and military equipment from the entire territory of Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders.
As for the claim about the war crimes responsibility, Ukraine is investigating more than 21,000 war crimes and crimes of aggression committed by Russia.
