“European Union stands united in support of Ukraine and the Member States remain ready to continue supporting Ukraine as long and as much as needed”

European Union defense ministers have agreed to start the work necessary for setting up an EU military assistance mission for Ukraine, the bloc’s top diplomat Josep Borrell said on August 30, 2022.

“There are many training initiatives on the way, but the needs are enormous and we need to ensure the coherence of these efforts,” EU foreign policy chief Borrell told reporters after an informal defense ministers’ meeting in Prague.

“I can say that all member states agree clearly on that and on launching the work necessary to define parameters for an EU military assistance mission for Ukraine,” Borrell said.

“It is clear that we need to be quick and ambitious, [to] demonstrate added value, flexibility, once again based on the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. And that is why today the Defense Minister of Ukraine has explained to us a list of activities — training activities at different levels, at different time horizons (short, medium, and long term) — that they need,” Borrell added.
