Klitschko confirmed that anti-aircraft defense was operating in Kiev, and reported that another group of drones was heading towards the city.
An air alert was declared throughout the entire Kiev region. Drones are also moving towards the Cherkasy region.
Support a war-torn country
An extraordinary EU summit on financial support for Ukraine and a review of the long-term EU budget is scheduled for early next year. During the two-day European Council meeting that ended on Friday, no consensus was reached on this issue. As European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen reported, Hungary opposed this.
In the case of Ukraine, there is a proposal to provide it with support worth 50 billion euros. “I am confident and optimistic that we will be able to fulfill our promise to support Ukraine with financial resources,” Michel said. He added that 26 member states have agreed to this so far.
Von der Leyen, in turn, said that the European Union budget needs new funds in response to the crises that the Union is suffering from. However, the European Union summit failed to achieve consensus on this issue. 26 countries voted “for” and only Hungary “against”. The matter will be raised at the EU summit in January. Whatever happens there, the European Commission will prepare “practical solutions” by then, the European Commission president said at the conference.
She said the current budget for 2021-2027 was designed before the pandemic, the war in Ukraine, the energy crisis and the inflation it caused, and the crisis in the Middle East.
