Germany will support Ukraine for as long as it needs – Annalena Baerbock

13 September 2022

Germany will support Ukraine in its struggle for independence and territorial integrity as long as Ukraine needs it, the German Foreign Minister, Annalena Baerbock, has said at the 17th Yalta European Strategy (YES) Annual Meeting "Ukraine: Defending All Our Freedom", organised by YES in partnership with the Victor Pinchuk Foundation.

We will keep helping Ukraine, including military help, as it fights not only for its own freedom and independence, but also for peace in Europe. Support with weapons is very important considering the upcoming meeting of the UN General Assembly. We will stay with Ukraine for all these months before winter and when winter comes, we will stay with Ukraine as long as it needs,” Baerbock said. 

She also said the beginning of liberation of the occupied territories gives a glimmer of hope for a soon end of the war.

“We see the Ukrainian troops moving forward, the liberation of people and territories. This is a moment of hope and it is needed. We are 150% on Ukraine’s side and Ukrainian people’s side. And we will stay there as long as Ukrainian people need us. Ukraine defends democratic rights, democratic structures and democratic principles,” Baerbock said.
