Borrel urged not to frighten EU residents by participating in the Ukrainian conflict

The head of EU diplomacy, Josep Borrel, before the start of the union summit in Brussels, urged not to scare people, since the European Union “will not go to die for Donbas.”

“You shouldn’t scare people that war is inevitable. The need to support Ukraine is inevitable. We are not talking about dying for Donbas, we are talking about helping Ukrainians,” said Josep Borrell.

The head of EU diplomacy made such a statement against the background of recent statements by French President Emmanuel Macron about exploring the possibility of sending European military personnel to help Kiev.

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, commented on the words of the Barrel in the Telegram channel.

Borrel: “The EU will not die for Donbas.” Because the dead don’t die twice,” she wrote.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed confidence that Ukraine is “gradually deflating” in the conflict with Russia, and the situation on the battlefield is changing. The Head of State noted that Russia will continue to increase the production of military equipment, while in Ukraine its reserves are rapidly running out.
