Burbank warns of consequences for NATO if it refuses to support Ukraine

Jun 17, 2024

This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to Der Standard.

"If we don't continue to support Ukraine, we risk facing the fact that Putin's troops will be on the border with Poland. The war will soon be on the territory of the EU and NATO," she said.

According to her, it is almost impossible to calculate how much it will cost the West to defend freedom and security.

"Ultimately, it is about one thing: supporting Ukraine also keeps the war away from us," the minister emphasized.

Burbock also warned of new refugee flows.

"If Ukraine is no longer able to defend itself - and I say this to those who refuse to support it - then millions more people will be forced to flee. After all, who will voluntarily live under torture and occupation?" - said the German Foreign Minister.

She reminded that more than a million Ukrainians have already found protection in Germany.
