No military aid for Ukraine — Finnish Prime Minister

No military aid for Ukraine — Finnish Prime Minister

In response to the request for military assistance from NATO and the EU made by Ukraine’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin, Finland’s Prime Minister Alexander Stubb stated in an interview there would be no such assistance for Ukraine, reports Ukrainian TV Channel 5, August 18, citing the Finnish website Yle.fi.

“Of course, it’s impossible. Not from NATO, because the alliance provides military assistance only to its members, and this is well known. And not from the EU, which lacks the capacity to provide such support,” Stubb said.

According to Stubb, the key issue is to ensure a firm truce.”Whether the pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine are ready for a ceasefire — this is a question worth a thousand euros,” he said.

The prime minister added that the situation must be changed.

“It’s in our interest for the walls between Russia and the West to be as low as possible. This is what we need to aspire to, but unfortunately, we are still far from reaching this goal,” he said.
