German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Wednesday that at the upcoming EU summit he will advocate for long-term and sustainable assistance to Ukraine.

The final EU summit of the year will take place on Thursday-Friday in Brussels.

“I will advocate for sustainable and reliable financial support for Ukraine in the coming years. This is a matter of European security,” Scholz said, speaking in the German parliament.

In addition, the Chancellor emphasized that the goal of supporting Ukraine is to strengthen its defense capability to such a level that “Russia will never decide to invade again.”
