At the defense ministers' meeting in Stockholm, Resnikov had demanded one million missiles worth four billion euros so that Ukraine could continue to defend itself against the Russian attack.
Borrell proposes that the EU countries provide Ukraine with ammunition from their stockpiles worth one billion euros as a first step. However, the European stocks are largely empty. There are also different ideas about a possible joint order of ammunition based on the model of the corona vaccines in order to refill the European depots.
Borrell is now hoping for a so-called jumbo meeting of European foreign and defense ministers on March 20th. "I hope they will then agree on the package," said the Spaniard.
