Earlier, it was claimed that Russia had deployed the Iran-made Shahed-136 drones in their war against Ukraine, which inflicted much destruction and death in Ukrainian cities and its civilian and energy infrastructure. The Ukrainian forces, on 7th December, Wednesday, shot down 14 Shahed drones. 

Further, new export controls are to be introduced, particularly for dual-use goods that Russia could make use of in its war against Ukraine. Additionally, proposals have been made to take down four more Russian channels off the air to cut down the spread of Russian propaganda, along with the introduction of more economic sanctions against the Russian energy and the mining sector. 

Europe has continuously supported Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian invasion from February 24, 2022, which has still been prevalent between the nations. However, the sanctions that the European Union imposed over Russia have disarmed the Red army to a considerable extent.

The European Commission stated, “Russia continues to bring death and devastation to Ukraine. We stand by Ukraine, and we are making Russia pay for its cruelty.”

Other than sanctions against Russia, the European Parliament has also launched support packages and campaigns in support of Ukraine. The recently launched campaigns,’ Generators of Hope’ and ‘LaptopsforUkraine’ are also providing hope to the war-affected citizens of Ukraine.
