BERLIN — Germany will support Ukraine “as strongly and as long as necessary”, Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Thursday, the one-year anniversary of the full-scale invasion of the country by Russia.

“What impresses us all very much – that is the determination and courage of the Ukrainians, how they defend their freedom,” Scholz said in a video message marking the anniversary.


“Germany supports them in this – as strongly and as long as necessary,” he said, adding that German aid to Ukraine, for financial and humanitarian support as well as weapons, had totaled more than 14 billion euros ($14.83 billion) so far.


The German government will do everything possible “to ensure that there is no escalation of the war between Russia and NATO”, the chancellor said.
