MEP: The war in Ukraine began because of the mistakes of Europe. EU is obliged to give weapons to Ukraine
The European Union is obligated to provide Ukraine with weapons because the Russian invasion was made possible because of the failures of European security policy. This was stated at a meeting of the European Parliament by the head of the EP subcommittee on security and defense, Nathalie Loiseau.
We must provide more support to Ukraine – military, financial, humanitarian, political and moralNathalie Loiseau
She noted that the supply of weapons to Ukraine is the responsibility of the European Union because the Russian invasion of Ukraine was the result of obvious failures in European security policy.
“We must learn from our failures to better protect our own citizens. Because the Russian invasion of Ukraine is a sign that we have failed. If we had admitted Ukraine into NATO, it would not be attacked now. Those who are with this disagree – they are wrong. If we had reacted more strongly to Russian aggression against Georgia, to the annexation of Crimea, and to the war in Donbas, if we did not turn a blind eye to the fact that 21,000 people died in Aleppo under Russian bombs – then Russia would not be convinced that we would allow her to attack Ukraine,” Nathalie Loiseau said.
A very important point has been raised here. The West has looked the other way too long. Germany kept building and strengthening its ties to Russia and it´s Nordstream 2 Project, even though it was severely warned by the American Administration that buying gas from Russia is supporting the enemy. We gave Russia the feeling that as when it took Crimea, yes ok we will officially critize you but another that really hurts and behind the scenes business as usual.
