The EU declined to comment on possible funding for the supply of tanks to Kyiv.

The EU does not comment on the possibility of financing the supply of tanks to Ukraine from the European Peace Fund, since such discussions are confidential, said Nabil Massrali, a spokeswoman for the European Union’s foreign service.

“As for the tanks that should be delivered to Ukraine, the EU has welcomed this step aimed at supporting Ukraine… But I can’t say yet whether these tanks will be part of the European Peace Fund. There are confidential discussions on this issue, so I can’t or comment,” Massrali said at a briefing in Brussels.

On Wednesday morning, speaking to the European Parliament, the head of the European Council, Charles Michel, announced the continuation of military assistance to Ukraine and supported the supply of tanks, which was announced by some Western countries.

The EU countries have previously agreed to use the funds of the extrabudgetary European Peace Fund to pay for part of the supply of weapons to Ukraine.
