Not only will Ireland continue to spend tens of millions of euros in military aid to support Ukraine, but it is likely to increase that spending as the war continues.

“Aid to Ukraine will continue. If anything, it will increase – part of the reason we are facing this cost of living crisis is that Vladimir Putin has decided to use energy and food as weapons of war. Ireland has so far provided €55m worth of military aid to Ukraine since the Russian invasion seven months ago as part of the EU package. Irish funds are used only for non-lethal military assistance.

“If we don’t help Ukraine, it’s not over. I assure you [Putin] threaten other countries. We absolutely have to support Ukraine because he threatens more of his neighbors, resulting in famines around the world and an increased risk of a worsening energy crisis in the rest of Europe. not. It’s not just their war, it’s our war,” said Tanaist.

At the Finne Gale business conference in Limerick’s Thomond Park on Saturday, Mr Varadkar said Ireland would offer asylum to Russian citizens, including those fleeing Putin’s military conscription.

“Any Russian fleeing Russia is the same. [else]They have the right to apply for international protection and if they do it will be considered and if their story is justified they will be granted international protection. If they don’t, they won’t,” Varadkar said.

“The same rules that apply to anyone apply to Russian citizens. People fleeing Russia have the right to apply for international protection. They are not necessarily entitled to it.” , we need to rate it and check out their stories,” he added.

Speaking at the United Nations in New York on Friday, Taoiseach Micheál Martin said the question of whether Ireland is ready to receive Russian asylum seekers must be assessed. We are accepting Ukrainian families, it is a priority for us, as well as regular asylum seekers, and we are well advanced this year, it is putting a lot of pressure on the country, so frankly Saying that, we must work within our capabilities, but we have never rejected those who seek to flee from problems of conscience or persecution.”

Taoiseach said Russia was acting like a “rogue state” and should lose its permanent seat on the UN Security Council.

The BBC reported on Saturday that people were queuing at the Russian border as they tried to avoid conscription after Putin announced the mobilization of at least 300,000 troops. He reportedly waited more than 20 hours for people to cross the Russian-Georgian border, which is about 10 kilometers long Saturday morning. – Additional report by The Guardian
