President of the European Council Charles Michel said this at a press conference on the results of the Ukraine-EU summit, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“This Summit has made two things absolutely clear. The first is a message for you and for the people of Ukraine. The European Union will support you in every way we can, for as long as it takes. We are not intimidated and will not be intimated by the Kremlin. Because Ukraine and the EU we are family. And my second message: the future of Ukraine is within the European Union,” Michel said.
According to him, the European Union’s support has been clear and solid since the first day of Russia’s full-scale invasion.
“We are determined to help you win on the battlefield,” the European Council president assured.
In this context, he reminded that the EU had already mobilised nearly 12 billion euros of military support, including lethal military support. In addition, Ukrainian soldiers will undergo training in the EU this year.
“Both Ukraine and the EU share the common goal of ending this war — based on respect for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. We therefore support Ukraine’s Peace Formula initiative and will actively work with Ukraine on the 10-point peace plan. We also back the idea of a Peace Formula Summit to launch this plan,” Michel said.
As reported, on February 3, the 24th Ukraine-EU summit was held in Kyiv.
