BRUSSELS, 24 Mar – The head of the European Council, Charles Michel, and the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said that decisions on the supply of weapons to Ukraine, including fighter jets, are taken at the national level, and declined to comment on such possible supplies.
In turn, the head of the European Commission confirmed this position: “This is a sovereign decision of the EU member states, and they must decide what and how to supply.”
Russia has previously sent a note to NATO countries because of the supply of weapons to Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that any cargo that contains weapons for Ukraine will become a legitimate target for Russia. The Foreign Ministry of the Russian Federation stated that the NATO countries are “playing with fire” by supplying weapons to Ukraine. Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov noted that pumping Ukraine with weapons from the West does not contribute to the success of Russian-Ukrainian negotiations and will have a negative effect. Lavrov stated that the US and NATO are directly involved in the conflict in Ukraine, “including not only the supply of weapons, but also the training of personnel … in the UK, Germany, Italy and other countries.”
