Ukraine asks for large-scale military aid from EU


Ukraine has called on the EU to hold an extraordinary session of the European Council on August 30 to introduce further sanctions against the Ukrainian side and provide large-scale military assistance to Ukraine to counter direct military aggression from Russia.
Ukraine’s representative to the European Union Kostiantyn Yeliseyev said this on Thursday, a Ukrinform correspondent in Brussels reported.
“Ukraine and the European Union must stop this war. We call for the holding on August 30 of an extraordinary session of the European Council on Ukraine. Enough concessions and pacification to the aggressor! Solidarity should be absolute and unequivocal. It should be materialized into further definite and substantial sanctions, as well as large-sale military and military-technical assistance to Ukraine to stop the aggressor,” he said.
According to Yeliseyev, now is the time when deeds must be replaced by words.
He recalled that since the beginning of Russian military aggression in February, the European Council had adopted 11 conclusions on Ukraine and that the European Parliament had adopted four resolutions calling on Russia to respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
“Was not it enough to understand that words mean nothing to the Kremlin?” Yeliseyev said.
