EU countries, which have become the largest donors of military aid to Ukraine after the United States, intend to continue providing assistance. However, some diplomats are expressing fears that this will not bring peace closer, but rather push it back. This is reported by the Financial Times, citing sources familiar with the talks.
Aid is provided through the European Peace Fund, which funds military operations abroad to build peace and prevent conflict.
Some EU diplomats have expressed doubts about the consistency of the EPF’s stated mission to supply arms. Problems could also arise from the supply of Western fighter jets if the EU decides to take such a step.
Even representatives of EU member states that support Ukraine were shocked when EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell admitted that the EPF could fund the supply of fighter jets to Ukraine.
On February 24, 2022, the army of the Russian Federation launched a special military operation in Ukraine.
Acting head of the Donetsk People’s Republic Denis Pushilin said Russian armed forces were approaching Vuhledar from three directions at once: from the south, south-west and west. The head of the DPR stressed that “the process is not moving quickly”.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, in turn, said that the situation in Donbass is hardening. According to Zelensky, a very difficult situation for the Armed Forces of Ukraine is developing in Artemovsk (Bakhmut) and Vugledar, as well as in Limansky and other directions.
