European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced that the European Union will enact a series of measures to bolster Ukraine's defenses against Russian aggression. For the first time in its history, the EU will "finance the purchase and delivery of weapons and equipment to a country under attack." In addition, the EU will close its airspace to Russian planes, "Including the private jets of oligarchs," and it will ban the Kremlin’s disinformation apparatus in the EU, including the state-owned media outlets Russia Today and Sputnik. Finally, said von der Leyen, the EU will "target the other aggressor in this war, Lukashenko’s regime, with a new package of sanctions."
