It was the first time, according to Ursula von der Leyen, that the EU would finance the purchase and transport of weapons and other equipment to a country that was under assault.
According to EU foreign policy leader Josep Borrell, the support for Ukraine has been accepted by the EU’s 27 foreign ministers, and such moves might be implemented within hours. He referred to it as “a watershed moment in the history of Europe.”

During a press conference before a meeting of EU foreign ministers, Borrell declared that “another taboo has been broken.” “There was a taboo about the European Union not sending weaponry in a war,” says the author.

 

 

In an interview with Reuters, Borrell stated that EU defense ministers will meet on Monday to discuss how to transform the monies into useful military hardware and equipment that will be sent to the Ukrainian military. He went on to say that Poland has committed to serve as a distribution hub for them.
According to sources, the EU would also prohibit the Russian state-owned television network Russia Today as well as the news outlet Sputnik.
After advancing into Ukraine’s second largest city, Kharkiv, and destroying a major gas pipeline on the fourth day of fighting, the decisions were made. Putin also ordered the Russian defense minister and the chief of the military’s General Staff to place the country’s nuclear deterrent forces on a “special regime of combat duty,” according to a statement released by the Russian government.

Last Thursday, Vice President Biden announced new sanctions that, in coordination with a coalition of other nations, will target more big Russian banks and make it more difficult for Russia to conduct business in the United States, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Japan.
The sanctions will also target Russian elites, as well as 13 Russian corporations and enterprises, and will restrict their ability to borrow money. There will also be “additional restrictions” on what can be sent to Russia, according to Vice President Joe Biden.
