Borrell wants 'bold decisions' for Ukraine from EU ministers

Apr 11, 2024

EU diplomat Josep Borrell said that he expects "bold decisions" for Ukraine from the joint meeting of EU foreign and defense ministers to be held on 22 April.

Borrell wrote about this on his Twitter account on Thursday evening (X).

The EU's top diplomat noted that the day before, Russia had again barbarically attacked the Ukrainian population and critical infrastructure.


"Putin cannot be stopped with words alone. We must provide more military support. Today I wrote to the EU foreign and defence ministers ahead of the Foreign Affairs Council meeting on 22 April. We must accelerate and expand military support for Ukraine," Borrell said.

He added that the EU should provide Ukraine with air defense systems to intercept Russian missiles, and protect cities and critical infrastructure.

"Ukraine needs surface-to-air missile batteries. We are doing a lot. 31 billion in military aid to Ukraine, and we are supporting our defense industry to increase the production of missiles and ammunition in Europe. We will do more," Borrell promised.
