The European Council at its summit approved macro-financial assistance to Ukraine in the amount of EUR 9 billion. This was expressed by Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki, who talked at a public interview after the European Council highest point on Friday in Brussels.
As per the top of the Polish government, the EU endorsed “further monetary help to Ukraine in how much EUR 9 billion.”
“There is a conflict in Ukraine, and nothing remained to pay medical caretakers, educators, police, line monitors, or numerous other public administrations,” Morawiecki explained.
He said that the document based on the summit’s outcome also contains provisions on military assistance to Ukraine.
“The advantage in artillery, according to the allies and our own sources is 1: 8, 1:10. How difficult it is to fight such an overwhelming enemy force. That is why Poland, as well as the United States, Great Britain, and the Baltic States, are doing everything possible to help Ukraine get the weapons,” Morawiecki said.
He also thanked the European Commission for its positive role in convincing EU leaders to grant Ukraine EU candidate status.
According to him, if the EU is to be a strategically strong region and an important geopolitical player, it must provide membership to the countries of the Western Balkans, Ukraine, Moldova, and Georgia after the latter undergoes democratic transformations..
