Josep Borrell arrives in Kyiv: first details and purpose of the visit

It is known that Borrell made a stop in Warsaw on his way to Ukraine to "consult with Polish friends in order to better understand" what is happening in Ukraine and how they can continue their support. Thus, during meetings at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense of Poland, he discussed all forms of assistance provided by the EU to Ukraine, including military, financial, reconstruction assistance, restrictive measures against Russia and international solidarity, the use of frozen Russian assets, etc.

The EU member states agreed that they should support Ukraine. According to him, it is not only a matter of time, quantity and quality of supplies. He emphasized that the EU must do more and faster because Ukraine must win the fight for European security, among other things.

"I am going to Ukraine to discuss the ongoing elaboration of security commitments by the EU. We have already had many consultations with Ukraine on this issue," the EU High Representative said.

He also added that the EU should continue to supply ammunition to Ukraine. Borrell expects to reach a final agreement on an aid fund for Ukraine under the European Peace Fund by early March.
