For Ukraine to win, Europe must continue to provide Kyiv with all types of assistance, as well as impose even tougher sanctions and visa restrictions against russia.Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin said this while addressing MEPs in Strasbourg.”The Ukrainians have proved their courage and endurance and they must win the war – there is no alternative. Therefore, Europeans must continue to provide all forms of assistance to Ukraine and be ready to adopt even tougher sanctions and visa restrictions against russia,” the European Parliament press service quoted Sanna Marin as saying.The Finnish Prime Minister also did not skirt the topic of the energy crisis in Europe and called for short-term measures to reduce electricity prices.”The current crisis is not the first in Europe and will not be the last,” Marin stressed.Sanna Marin noted that “russia’s short-sighted actions” had already rallied the Western alliance. Therefore, the Finnish prime minister urged Europe to continue to resist russian energy extortion, remain united and uphold its values: the rule of law, democracy and human rights.Last month, EU foreign affairs ministers agreed to fully suspend a visa agreement with russia and make the application system lengthier and more costly – but still possible.”Sanctions must be reflected in the everyday lives of ordinary russians,” she said. “It is not right that while russia kills civilians in Ukraine, russian tourists travel freely in Europe.”Throughout her speech, Marin repeatedly praised Ukraine’s resistance and the “brave and unyielding” characters of its people and said the bloc’s support for Ukraine must not collapse under the weight of the energy crisis.”We may count the cost of war in euros, but Ukrainians count it in human lives,” she told MEPs.Reflecting on the developments over the past months, the Finnish PM said the EU was paying a “heavy price” for its entrenched dependence on russian fuels, which she blamed on geopolitical mistakes made in the past.”We have to admit that we have been far too naïve about Russia and have built our assumptions about Russia’s activities on wrong ideas,” she said. “We should have listened more closely to our friends from the Baltic states and Poland, who have lived under Soviet rule.
