4:03 pm
that speech? by the ukranian president? well, it was an impassioned speech in the european parliament. we went on extremely well . there was huge cheers actually, even as he was walking in, the ham is cycle of the european parliament. but that was expected. i think the members of the european parliament, we knew that they would respond to him in that way. but what's happened since is that he's moved here to the european council, where on the same day, the 27 leaders of the european union are meeting and he gave a joint press conference with us on the lion. and we shall michel, the european council president and she being the european commission president, demanding that actually talks for ukraine's membership of the european union begin before the end of this year. president zalinski being here is very symbolic, but also he wanted action during this visit. what about what ukraine needs in his war against russia? what it, what about the sticking point of fighter jets? well, this has been the big talking point,
4:04 pm
especially over the last couple of weeks since european partners allowed leopard to another tanks to be exported or re exported into ukraine. the germans had a block on re exportation of times that were made in germany, and i released that ever since that's been opens to discussion and the pressure from keith, the government is asking for a fight to just like that as he comes here of the back of a visit to the united kingdom, where the brit said that they would accept that they would train fights of pilots, but what they need, as well as those fight to jazz. obviously that door having been opened with the tanks is one thing, but there is reluctance among in the big a you capital, specifically for france and germany, him in berlin and paris to send a more fight to jesse for over a number of concerns firstly. and what that will mean, the escalation of the war, but also what it means for their own domestic national security. let's have a listen to the message the european commission president had. i want to ask you about that in a say. we all heard the urgency of your call to support ukraine. now you
4:05 pm
spoke in a very moving manner about and praising a european way of life and you added that ukrainians. want to come home to this european way of life. and indeed today you see we are one families, we have one vision and family members help each other. you can count on us. we will continue to provide our full support now to sustain your people, so this atrocious war and for the future. so all the right signals being sent there. when i went, when we look at what you find needs that can keep, rely on brussels for what it does actually need. at the end of the day when it comes to munitions and, and, and weapons. well, the european union would say is yes, they say that they're providing lots and lots of money that the process for ukraine
4:06 pm
to join. the european union is underway and moving quicker than possible. but the decision on the weapons is done with the individual member states of the european union as i was saying, france and germany being probably the biggest players in that. what was interesting is that a sort of underlying a nice that they will put now forward as 10th round of sanctions that they will sanction senior political and military leadership. that they will also look at other exports to try and hit the russian economy further to try and twist the arm of vladimir putin to bring the invasion to an end. but so far, the 9 lines, the sanctions that have been imposed haven't worked. i think what's interesting is this, this process in 3 you exception. the symbolism of this meeting is really, really important. zalinski is visit here because ukraine isn't only fighting to become independent of russian russia. the vision of the ukrainian government and the ukrainian authority is not just to turn away from the kremlin, but a turn towards brussels, a turn towards the european union. they want to be
4:07 pm
