Josep Borrell declares he is “on his way to Ukraine

Europe’s top diplomat, Josep Borrell, said Monday he was on his way to Ukraine and reiterated calls for more aid to the war-torn country.

The visit comes as the international community tries to redouble its efforts to help Ukraine replenish its weapons stocks to fight the Russian invasion, which is approaching its second anniversary. “I’m on my way to Ukraine, I’m on my way to kyiv,” Borrell told reporters in Warsaw, adding that the European Union must support Ukraine “by all means.”

European Union officials agreed Thursday on 50 billion euros in aid to Ukraine, a move they saw as a strong message to Russia, and after overcoming opposition from Hungarian leader Viktor Orban.

The head of European diplomacy considered it necessary to arm Ukraine so that it could “defeat the invasion” and urged the EU to support it for as long as necessary and with “all what it will take.” “It’s not just a question of time. It’s a question of quantity and quality of our supplies. And it is certain that we must do more and faster because Ukraine must win,” insisted Mr. Borrell.

This is Mr Borrell’s fourth visit since Russia’s full-scale invasion began in February 2022.
