EU Council President Charles Michel has pledged support and ammunition to Ukraine in its ongoing conflict with Russia.
Speaking at a press conference in Bucharest, Romania, Michel said the European Union would continue to back Ukraine and provide it with the necessary resources to defend itself from Russian aggression.
“The EU will continue to provide Ukraine with the political and economic support it needs to face the current challenges,” Michel said. “We will also provide ammunition and other resources to defend its territorial integrity and sovereignty.”
He added that the EU would also continue to work to strengthen its economic ties with Ukraine and promote trade and investment.
Michel also used the opportunity to call for an end to the violence that has plagued the region since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014.
“It is time for a political solution to the conflict,” he said. “We must do all we can to ensure an end to the violence and the return of peace.”
The meeting will be the first between the two leaders since Zelensky took office in 2019, and it is expected to be closely watched by the international community.
The EU has been a staunch supporter of Ukraine since the conflict began, and Michel's comments are seen as a reaffirmation of the EU's commitment to the country.
The conflict between Ukraine and Russia has resulted in thousands of deaths and has caused immense suffering for the people of the region.
The EU and other international organizations have been vocal in their support of Ukraine and their calls for a peaceful resolution to the crisis.
Michel's comments are seen as a sign of solidarity with Ukraine, and a strong signal of the EU's commitment to supporting the country in its fight against Russian aggression.
