The European Commission has proposed spending an additional EUR 500 million on military aid to Ukraine, which is twice as much as previously agreed.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said on Friday that he was confident that EU leaders attending this week’s summit outside Paris would agree to step up funding for military aid to Ukraine.
The support will make Ukrainian forces better equipped to fight against the Russian forces.
The EU summit started on Thursday and will end on Friday. The discussions at the summit have largely revolved around how the EU can help Ukraine and how the Union will deal with the energy crisis that is building up in the wake of the war.
