Borrell: EU military assistance mission to Kyiv could be established in October

At a meeting in New York, the EU Foreign Ministers discussed proposals to create a mission to provide military assistance to Ukraine. Josep Borrell, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, told reporters about this.

The work is underway, he said, expressing the hope that concrete results will soon be seen. According to Borrell, the decision to create a mission can be made at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in October, but “this must be agreed with the Ukrainian side.”

The politician also noted that all ministers decided to continue helping Kyiv. “We will continue to use the EU arms financing mechanism successfully and effectively,” he was quoted as saying. TASS.

Earlier, Borrell said that in Europe, many residents and politicians are in favor of lifting anti-Russian sanctions and refusing to supply weapons to the Ukrainian military. The diplomat explained that there are such people even in his environment. According to him, they believe that the European Union is delaying the resolution of the conflict, and the sanctions do not work. In turn, Borrell noted that the EU is not going to abandon this tactic, and called on everyone to endure the consequences of such a policy.
