“Putin was wrong – about the courage of Ukrainians, about Europe, about us, about the nature of our democracies, about our will to oppose the great powers and imperialism,” Scholz said.

Scholz also promised Ukraine further financial, humanitarian and military support.

Germanny announced on Dec. 13 it would provide 50 million euros to Ukraine, part of the $1 billion aid package pledged by some 70 countries and international organizations to support Ukraine this winter amid Russia’s mass missile attacks on its critical infrastructure.
