In a new year’s phone call with Zelensky, European Union president Ursula von der Leyen promised continued support for Ukraine.
“In the first call of the new year with President Zelensky, I conveyed my wholehearted support and best wishes for 2023 to the Ukrainian people.
The EU stands by you, for as long as it takes. “We support your heroic struggle, a fight for freedom, and against brutal aggression,” she wrote on Twitter.
Ursula also promised EU support for Ukraine this winter with generators and to also start disbursing the 18-billion-euro support package in monthly tranches.
