BRUSSELS, November 14. /TASS/. EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said that he 'does not know' whether Ukraine has a chance to win in the conflict, stressing that "his duty" was "to support it."
Speaking at a press conference following a meeting of EU defense ministers, Borrel was asked if he shared the opinion of Ukrainian top military commander Valery Zaluzhny that "the war situation is in a stalement" and that the EU needs to gather weapons for a new Kiev offensive next year in order to "decisively" change the situation on the battlefield.
"Look, the chief commander of the Ukrainian army knows the situation much better than I [do], I’m not going to discuss the situation on the battlefield with him. He knows, and if he has said whatever he has said, I don’t know, it's not me who is going to consider if he is right or not. My duty, my work is to support him. It’s not me who is fighting, it’s not us [the EU] who are fighting, it’s the Ukrainians," Borrell said.
