EU needs to ramp up ammunition deliveries to Ukraine, Charles Michel tells Euronews

Among the topics Euronews discussed with some of the bloc's top politicians were Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the situation in the Middle East, migration and how Brussels can ensure people turn out to vote in the elections that will be held between 6 and 9 of June.

"We need to provide more military equipment now" to Ukraine, European Council President Charles Michel, said. "Not in two years. It will be too late in two years. It's now."

Meanwhile, European Commission Vice-President Margaritis Schinas, discussed migration and highlighted recent deals struck with third countries as a good way to crack down on irregular arrivals to the continent.

"We tried to establish partnerships with the 25 countries of origin in transit that mattered to us with migration," he said, emphasising the agreement struck over the weekend with Egypt.

We also heard from European Parliament President Roberta Metsola and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.
