Newsline: EU Foreign top diplomat wants war in Ukraine to end as soon as possible

The European Union wants the war in Ukraine to end as soon as possible, but how that happens is important too, its chief diplomat said on Wednesday, calling for the bloc to send more arms to Kyiv. “We want it to end as soon as possible, but not in any way,” Josep Borrell told European Parliament. “Because if we’re going to have a destroyed country that has been dismembered territorially and neutralized, with millions of people in exile, and millions of people dead, then no, we don’t want this war to end like this,” he said. “That is why we have to continue arming Ukraine… More weapons, that is what the Ukrainians expect of us.” (https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2022-04-06/how-war-in-ukraine-ends-matters-says-eu-foreign-policy-chief) Borrell noted that continued EU purchases of Russian oil and gas gave Russia many time more money than the financial aid the bloc has provided to Ukraine.
