“The price we pay as the EU, as NATO, is the price we can measure in currency, in money. The price Ukrainians pay is measured in lives lost every day. So, we should stop complaining and step up and provide support”
Jens Stoltenberg at a joint meeting of the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Subcommittee on Security and Defence told MEP’s about the need to support Ukraine till the victory.
“40 million people live in Europe, which is brutally attacked by a big power; Russia. If we don’t react to that, and after we have seen what happened in Bucha and other places, it violates my understanding of… what should I say… decent behaviour of neighbours and friends of Ukraine. So, of course, yes, it has a price; but not to act and just let that brutality continue, and let that brutality of Russia be awarded is, for me, a higher price,” said Stoltenberg.
“The price we pay as the European Union, as NATO, is a price we can measure in currency, in money. The price they pay is measured in lives lost every day. So, we should just stop complaining and step up and provide support, full stop,” he added.
