Baerbock urges to help Ukraine on the eve of winter with “all we have”

Oct 2, 2023

Ukraine's allies should help the country expand its air defense and strengthen its energy supply system in general ahead of winter and possible Russian attacks on critical infrastructure.

This was stated by German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, as quoted by Deutsche Welle.


At the beginning of an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers in Kyiv, Baerbock reiterated her call for a "winter protective umbrella" for Ukraine.

According to her, this includes expanding air defense, supplying power generators, and strengthening energy supply in general.

"Last winter, we saw how brutally the Russian president wages this war, deliberately attacking power plants," she said.

The minister added that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is counting on the fact that the water supply will also fail at 20-degree temperatures.

"We have to prevent that as much as we can with everything we have," Baerbock emphasized.
