Military Aid to Ukraine: How Can the EU Live up to Expectations? (cepAdhoc)


Times are getting increasingly difficult for European security. Russia is becoming more and more aggressive on the Ukrainian front and elsewhere – including cyberspace with disinformation campaigns and cyberattacks. The US is unable to vote for more Ukrainian military aid, although it has been providing most of it in recent years.


European countries are struggling to deliver military aid on time and to agree on how to compensate for the American shortfall. This situation is too dangerous for Europeans to try and keep the status quo. Before dis-cussing a broader European Security and Defense Union framework, which will take a long time to design, a short-term plan for military aid to Ukraine must be developed.
