War in Ukraine ‘could last for years’, says German Baerbock – Reuters

The war in Ukraine could last for years, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock has said, assuring the country’s continued support from Europe’s biggest economy.

“We have to be prepared for the possibility that the war could last for years,” she told Germany’s Bild am Sonntag in an interview published on Sunday. This implies that Ukraine may still need heavy weapons next summer, she added.

“Ukraine also defends our freedom and security architecture and we support Ukraine financially and militarily for as long as necessary,” she said.

The foreign minister also defended Ukraine’s claim to the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, which was seized by Russia in 2014. “Crimea is also part of Ukraine. The world never recognized the illegal annexation of 2014,” she said.
