The EU has actually already created security guarantees for Ukraine – the head of the European Council



The European Union already provided de facto security guarantees for Ukraine when it began providing military aid to combat Russian aggression.

This opinion was expressed by the head of the European Council, Charles Michel, during his visit to Kyiv, it is reported Ukrinform.

According to him, the European leaders gave weapons to Ukraine not because some agreement was signed, but because there was no other way out of the current situation.

“Perhaps I will surprise you. We created a de facto security guarantee for Ukraine when, right from the first days of the invasion, we decided to mobilize all possible instruments of support, including the provision of lethal military equipment within hours of the start of the war. It showed our very strong commitment.” – said the politician.

He added that there are at least two situations that should be considered through the lens of creating security guarantees for Ukraine.

“First of all, it is the industrial and defense sectors of the EU. In Europe, we are working very hard to make our industrial base stronger and to supply more ammunition to Ukraine. We have also trained 30,000 Ukrainian military personnel, and this number should increase to 40,000 by the end of the year. It is also a guarantee of security for the future.” said Michel.

Currently, according to the politician, the EU is working “on clarifying and stabilizing security guarantees for the future” for Ukraine.

We will remind you that it recently became known that in early December, the European Union will send a mission to Kyiv to discuss specific proposals regarding security guarantees for Ukraine.

Earlier it was reported that Ukraine has already started relevant bilateral negotiations on security guarantees with six countries of the world.
