The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, reiterated today in kyiv his commitment to support Ukraine “as long as it takes” and “regardless of the price to pay” in a speech addressed to the Supreme Rada, the Ukrainian unicameral parliament.
“I wanted to tell you that we are with you and we will be for as long as it takes. I wanted to tell you that we will support Ukraine regardless of the price to pay,” he said, before announcing for Ukraine a new aid package of 55 million euros.
This will be made up, he said, of 51 million financed through the World Bank group to support small and medium-sized Ukrainian companies, as well as four million through the United Nations development program to supply green energy systems to schools.
Sánchez pointed out that “things have changed” since his first speech before the Rada in February, the anniversary of the invasion, as Ukraine is now in the middle of a counteroffensive against an enemy “that is showing signs of weakness.”
“We have all seen thethe events of the past week. they speak for themselves“, he said, referring to the failed mutiny led by the leader of the Wagner mercenary group, Yevgeny Prigozhin.
