Menczer: Why send weapons to Ukraine unless war is protracted?

Why should the European Union plan to finance weapons shipments for Ukraine "if there is no war in the next four years?" Tamas Menczer, state secretary at the foreign ministry, said in reaction to remarks by Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Wlachovsky, on Sunday.

Wlachovsky said earlier on Twitter that he could not recall “a debate in which it was suggested that the war could go on for four more years,” as suggested by Peter Szijjarto, his Hungarian counterpart.

“The war could end tomorrow; Russia is the problem rather than the EU,” Wlachovsky said.

The Slovak minister “either has a bad short term memory … or he is lying,” Menczer said, and noted that foreign ministers of the EU had recently discussed a proposal under which an annual 5 billion euros could be spent on financing arms for Ukraine in the next four years.
