US aid ‘indispensable’ for defense of Ukraine, Scholz says – POLITICO

Citing the EU’s decision to allocate more funding for Ukraine at the extraordinary European Council summit last week, the German chancellor urged the U.S. Congress to do its part to defend Ukraine by green-lighting the further aid proposed by Biden.

Scholz said congressional approval of the aid package would “send the right message to the Russian president that his hopes are in vain, that he simply has to wait long enough for the support of Ukraine’s friends in Europe, North America and elsewhere to wane.”

Asked about the ongoing crisis in the Middle East, and Israel’s planned offensive in Rafah, the German leader said that the Israeli government needed to conduct military operations in a balanced manner.

“I have already said it very precisely: the type of warfare must meet the demands that Israel makes on itself, but which are also imposed by international law,” Scholz said.
