NAt the special meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF), which began today in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and continues until Monday, Borrell reiterated the EU’s commitment to supporting Ukraine in the war against Russia, regardless of the budgetary investment that this represent.

“We will continue to support the people of Ukraine (…) There are those who ask how much money we will spend on this conflict. We have committed to supporting Ukraine to resist until Putin decides to stop the war, but I don’t think that will happen soon”said the highest representative in EU Security Policy.

In his speech, Borrell recalled that “Putin started the war” and that the Russian president “will wait for the elections in the United States” to consider the future or the possibility of putting an end to the conflict that began just over two years ago.

Regarding the prolonged war between Russia and Ukraine, he expressed concern about the possibility of something similar happening in the Middle East, referring to the conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
