“We will support Ukraine as long as it takes. We are doing this to uphold our European values”
Since the full-scale war started, the European Union has provided more than €10 billion in financial support to Ukraine, stated European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen at the Bled Strategic Forum.
“We will support Ukraine as long as it takes. We are doing it for Ukraine. But we are also doing this to show — to Russia and the world — that breaking internationally shared rules comes with a massive cost,” stressed the President of the European Commission.
“This effort must come together with a new European strategic thinking,” added von der Leyen.
