On Tuesday (10 January), Annalena Baerbock, Germany’s Foreign Minister (pictured), surprised Kharkiv. She promised to provide more weapons and “concrete propositions” for Ukraine’s accession.
Baerbock made a statement before meeting with Dmytrokuleba, the foreign minister. He expressed solidarity with Ukrainians living in harsh winter conditions and Russia’s invasion.
She stated that “This city is a symbol of the absolute insanity of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and the inexorable suffering people, especially from the east, are subjected to every day.”
Baerbock promised, even though he did not name the weapons, that Germany would send Marder combat vehicles to Ukraine as part of its increased military support.
She stated that Ukraine must not lose sight of its European position and its desire to join the EU.
She stated: “That’s also why I would love to talk about progress made during this accession process.
“We, the government, are willing to make specific offers to Ukraine to help make progress in strengthening law and independence institutions as well as fighting corruption, as well as aligning with EU standard.”
