The Netherlands urged to help Ukraine at the cost of their security

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte called on other countries to help Ukraine even at the cost of their own security. His words are quoted by Politico, RIA Novosti reports.

According to Rutte, it is important that “all the countries that still have something on their shelves deliver it” to Kyiv. “This may mean that in the coming months you will not be able to fully protect your own territory, but for the moment it is important that we give priority to Ukraine,” he said.

Rutte said in May that Germany and France should make concessions in their foreign policy in order to serve the interests of the European Union (EU). However, he noted that he does not call on the EU countries to abandon their policies. According to him, the EU member states just need to better coordinate their common efforts.
