Brussels points out that peace initiatives are not finding a response in Moscow, so the EU will continue to help Ukraine defend itself against Russia’s ever-increasing aggression.

The decision to supply Western tanks to Ukraine is due to the European Union’s intention to help Ukraine defend itself against the backdrop of Russia’s escalation of the conflict. This is what the official representative of the EU Foreign Service, Peter Stano, said on Monday, January 30.

The tank deliveries to Kyiv are “a response to Russia’s continued development” of “killing civilians, destroying civilian infrastructure, using hunger as a weapon,” Stano said.

According to him, the Russian authorities are using “energy, hunger – everything they can to destroy Ukraine” as a weapon. Since Moscow has not stopped its illegal aggression for almost a year now, the EU must help Kyiv defend itself, while Ukrainians defend their territory and defend their people from aggression,” the ultimate goal of which is the destruction of the nation and nation. , as Putin said,” said the EU representative.

“This is not an escalation, it is a response to the increasing pressure and bloodshed of the Russian Federation,” Stano stressed. He noted that all peace efforts so far have “crashed against the Kremlin’s wall of ignorance”, rejecting any peace initiatives and opportunities to talk about ending this conflict in negotiation table.

“That is why the EU will continue to help Ukraine defend itself,” concluded Peter Stano.

Remember, on January 25, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced the delivery of 14 Leopard 2 A6 tanks to Ukraine. Berlin will also allow other countries to re-export tanks for the Armed Forces. Earlier, Poland, Spain and the Netherlands announced their intention to provide such tanks to Kyiv.

The task was to immediately assemble two tank battalions for Ukraine. We can talk about the supply of 90 units of Leopard 2 to Ukraine by European partners.

In addition, on January 26, the US authorities officially confirmed their intention to transfer 31 Abrams tanks to the modern modification of the M1A2 in Ukraine, but it will take several months.
