German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is convinced Vladimir Putin will not see support for Ukraine from its partners get weaker.

That’s according to Ukrinform.

“The fact that the House of Representatives passed a decision on further financial support for Ukraine, particularly support with weapons, is […] sends a very clear message, including to the Russian president, that he should not count that he can continue this war because aid to Ukraine from the United States and Europe will decrease,” German Chancellor said, commenting on the $61 billion aid package approved for Ukraine by the US House.

Meanwhile, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said that “the hearts of the US and Europe are beating in unison again” before a meeting of the EU foreign and defense ministers in Luxembourg on April 22.

In Luxembourg, State Secretary of the German Ministry of Defense Siemtje Moeller also promised Germany would send the promised additional Patriot air defense system to Ukraine without any delays.

On April 20, the US House of Representatives voted for a $61 billion aid bill for Ukraine.
