GERMANY, FRANCE,UN: Germany on Saturday dramatically ramped up its backing for Ukraine’s battle against Russia, approving weapons deliveries for Kyiv in a policy U-turn and agreeing to limit Moscow’s access to the SWIFT interbank system.

“The Russian invasion of Ukraine marks a turning point in history. It threatens our entire post-war order,” said Chancellor Olaf Scholz as his government approved the delivery of a huge batch of lethal weapons to Ukraine.

In a shift from its longstanding policy of banning weapons exports to conflict zones, Berlin is opening up its Bundeswehr store, pledging to transfer 1,000 anti-tank weapons and 500 “Stinger” class surface-to-air missiles to Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the world must brace for a long war between Russia and Ukraine after Moscow launched an invasion of its pro-Western neighbour, French President Emmanuel Macron warned today. “I can tell you one thing this morning it is that this war will last,” Macron’s told France’s annual agriculture fair.

Meanwhile, India joined China and UAE in abstaining from a vote on a UNSecurity Council (UNSC) resolution that “deplored” the Russian aggression against Ukraine in keeping with what official sources described as India’s consistent, steadfast and balanced position on the matter.

Russia vetoed the resolution that was watered down by the US and others to ensure China abstained instead of joining Russia in voting against it. Eleven countries voted in favour. Apart from 6 UNSC member-states, 81 non-Security Council members also co-sponsored the resolution.
