"But Ukraine still hasn't won," he noted at a forum in Toja, northeastern Spain, where he defended European sanctions imposed on Moscow and military aid to Kyiv and called for continued efforts in that direction.

"We have to do better" as well as "make the world aware of the causes and consequences of this war," Borrell urged, recalling that Brazil and India refrained from condemning the Russian annexation before the UN Security Council.

"Europeans have created a garden that is surrounded by jungle," he added.

"If we don't want the jungle to take over the garden, we will have to intervene," he warned, calling for an increase in Europe's military arsenal.

"This is not a whim, this is something necessary, imperative for survival," emphasized the EU's number one diplomat.
