This is stated in an article on the website of the faction of the European People's Party.
"When we realized that the supply of weapons to Ukraine is in our strategic interest, we created the "Military Ramstein". Now it is quite obvious that for the future of European geopolitical security we also need to create an "Integration Ramstein" or "Ramstein of expansion" without delay, - the message says. in Article.
Kubilyus noted that the geopolitical integration of Ukraine to the West is no less important than Leopard or Abrams tanks for the defense of Ukraine.
"We need a strategy, which I call the strategy of "The power of expansion and the expansion of the power of democracy". And it should cover not only Ukraine, but also other countries of the Eastern Partnership, as well as the Western Balkan region. In the West, when we want to achieve something, we know how to consolidate his political will," the MEP emphasized.
He added that Putin is fighting against such a geopolitical perspective of Ukraine's integration because he is afraid of Ukraine's success. "He is afraid that such an inspiring example can destroy the Kremlin regime. That is why we need to have a strategy on how not to allow Putin to win in his strategy of countering the integration of Ukraine," Kubilyus wrote.
