Eurpean Parliament President Roberta Metsola told CNN on Monday that the EU needs to do more to help Ukraine in light of Russia’s escalation by providing more military equipment.
“I think all countries could and should do more,” Metsola told. “What we've seen today shows that Russia will continue to escalate further… How are we going to respond? If our response is not proportionate to the escalation, then we're just going to keep seeing him killing more people.”
Metsola said sanctions by the European Union were “clearly not enough” and she called on all member states to come together and provide more weaponry, specifically tanks, which the Ukrainians have requested.
“Ukraine is asking for them, and the European Union has the facility to coordinate what it gives to Ukraine. I know the high representatives very much working on this. I know from military perspective we can do more," she said.
