Borrell says US aid to Ukraine may decrease, so EU should be ready to compensate for it

He stated that the EU has many problems

Due to the war between Hamas and Israel, there is a high probability that US assistance to Ukraine will be reduced. Therefore, in order to continue to counter Russian aggression and prevent the Kremlin's war from spreading further into Europe, the EU must be ready to fill this gap and provide the necessary support package.

This is the opinion of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell. He made his statement during the Congress of the Party of European Socialists held in Malaga (to watch the video, scroll to the bottom of the page).

Borrell said that the EU has many problems that will be a real challenge. He called Ukraine the main one in this regard.

The head of diplomacy also said that it is impossible to defeat Russian aggression instantly and called on Europe to be ready to lend a helping hand if necessary.

"We have many problems that will be a test for the EU. First of all, Ukraine, where the prospect of defeating Russia is not immediate. And we, the Europeans who have the necessary funds for this, must be ready, politically speaking, to continue to help Ukraine, given that US support is likely to decline," Borrell said.

The Pentagon recently assured that Ukraine will continue to receive military assistance from Washington, but it is likely to be somewhat less.

In total, the United States has allocated more than $60 billion to our country. According to John Kirby, 96% of the funds have been spent out of the total amount allocated to Ukraine since the beginning of the war.

By the way, Germany plans to double its military assistance to Ukraine. Thus, Germany will provide 8 billion euros to Kyiv.

As OBOZ.UA reported earlier, Borrell noted that the situation in the Middle East is already affecting international support for Ukraine in the Russian war. He said that this is a "real problem" and called on Europe to make every effort to support our country.
