As Tagesschau recalled, in 1948-1952 the United States financed the reconstruction of Germany and other European countries with billions of dollars under the Marshall Plan. – Now it is Europe that plays a special role in supporting Ukraine, which is a candidate for EU membership. The road to reconstruction is therefore also Ukraine’s road to the European Union, said Scholz and von der Leyen. As they emphasized, supporting Kiev is in the interest of the EU.
– Ukraine also defends international order and principles, the foundations of our peaceful coexistence and prosperity around the world. So if we support Ukraine, we are building a future for us and our common Europe – said the chancellor, stressing that “the reconstruction of Ukraine is the task of the international community”.
