"Это будет местом, где будут проходить решающие события": Боррель прокомментировал наступление на Харьковщине

The EU High Representative named the reason for possible big changes on the front line, the price of which could be the loss of many lives.

Discussion in Six months of continued US support for Ukraine, as well as EU delays in the delivery of ammunition, could lead to major changes on the Ukrainian front line, at the cost of many lives.

This was stated by EU High Representative Josep Borrell during a visit to the United States, during a speech at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, Ukrinform reports.

“The latest news I received in the daily report from Brussels indicates that Russia has launched a new offensive, opening a new front north of Kharkov. I was there a few days before the start of the war. Now it will probably be the place where the decisive events will take place,” he said.

He expressed regret that the discussion in the United States regarding the extension of support for Ukraine took the Ukrainians six months.

“These six months could lead to big changes on the front line. The latest news I received in the daily report from Brussels indicates that Russia has launched a new offensive, opened a new front north of Kharkov. I was there a few days before the start of the war “. Now it will probably be the place where the decisive events will take place,” Borrell said.

He also noted that if Kremlin head Vladimir Putin wins this war, he will be able to destabilize other European Union countries that have knocked on NATO's door. This is exactly what traditionally neutral Finland and Sweden did, both of whom were firmly convinced that if they wanted to avoid invasion and aggression, the best thing they could do was become members of NATO.

Borrell is confident that Ukraine will continue to need the support of its allies.

“If we want Ukraine to be able to resist, we must do more for it and faster. So these six months of delay in American assistance, as well as some delay on our part in the supply of ammunition, may, unfortunately, lead to changes that, in many cases, will be paid for in the loss of lives, many lives,” Borrell said.

He noted that Europeans are concerned about whether the US will continue to pursue the same security priorities depending on who comes to the White House.

He touched on the topic of elections.

“This (elections – ed.) is your business, but it will affect the world, and especially us. We are watching what can happen in the USA. Because for us Europeans it will be very It is difficult to provide Ukraine with the support they need to continue their fight on their own. I believe that we – Europe and the United States – must continue this line of assistance powerfully.

He recalled that most EU member states, with the exception of “one or two” countries, perceive Russian aggression as an existential threat to Europe, especially those close to the Russian border. The EU was able to maintain unity around assistance to Ukraine and became its largest security provider. Since the beginning of the war, according to Borrell, EU assistance – both civilian and military – has exceeded 96 billion euros. By this indicator, the EU exceeds the United States, which remains the leader in providing military assistance.

Recall that earlier the chief diplomat of the European Union, Josep Borrell, commented on the world plan of China. He stated that is only a set of wishful thinking and opinions. So far, the only peace plan remains the Ukrainian proposal, but Moscow will not accept it.
