EU continue to provides assistance to Ukraine

Continous weaponry, as well as humanitarian assistance, is being provided by the European Union to the war-torn country of Ukraine amid its war with Russia, therefore providing significant support to the country.

The Commission asserted, “Medical and specialised equipment for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats are on their way to Ukraine. The European Union mobilises emergency reserves to provide hospitals and medical workers in Ukraine with the necessary tools to save lives”.

It further added that specific actions are being taken against the political gimmick taken by Russia, where it is using natural gas as a political and economic weapon.

EU cited, “The United States and Europe are taking decisive action to reduce overall demand for fossil fuels in line with our shared goal of net-zero emissions no later than 2050. Russia’s energy coercion has put pressure on the energy markets, hiked prices for the consumers, and threatened global energy security. This was most recently documented by the politically motivated acute disruptions of gas supplies to several European Union Member States”.

The 18 EU countries with underground gas storage facilities are required to fill 80% of their storage capacity by November 1.

Following the above statement, it then added, “Our Commission has made important strides towards reducing the European Union’s dependence on Russian fossil fuels by decreasing natural gas demand, cooperating on energy efficiency technologies, & diversifying energy supplies. The United States of America & the European Commission are also taking decisive action to reduce the overall demand for fossil fuels in line with the Paris Agreement and our shared goal of net-zero emissions no later than 2050”.

Meanwhile, the President of the European Union, Ursula von der Leyen, is in continuous contact with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy and taking updates on the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war. While taking an update, the EU President once again affirmed the support of the Commission to the country of Ukraine.
