EU’s Timmermans: “Ukraine deserves all our support”

DW spoke with European Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans, who was in Kyiv for talks with Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal. Timmermans said that “Ukraine deserves all our support.” “The fact that the Ukrainian people fight with such determination and such passion for their freedom should be a clear signal to the European Union that we should support them with every means we have,” he said. “I think it is a logical step undertaken by France, Germany and others to support Ukraine militarily with these armored personnel carriers,” he said, in reference to some of the latest weapons delivery pledges.
