EU flight ban and weapons…



BRUSSELS — European countries under the banner of the European Union banded together for the first time to finance the provision of lethal weapons to Ukraine, in what the bloc’s top official called “a watershed moment.”

“For the first time ever, the European Union will finance the purchase and delivery of weapons and other equipment to a country that is under attack,” Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, the E.U.’s executive branch, said Sunday. She spoke ahead of a meeting of E.U. foreign ministers intended to hash out details of a raft of new sanctions and other measures aimed at Russia.


How will the weapons get to the front? Ukraine is crawling with 150,000 Russians, and the Russians have air superiority.
