The army of the member states of the European Union (EU) has been in Ukraine for a long time.

According to the information provided by APA with reference to Anadolu agency, the spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Maria Zakharova, wrote this on the "Telegram" page.

In an interview with the Spanish newspaper "Pais", the diplomat recalled the words of Joseph Borrell: "EU member states have never considered and are not considering the possibility of sending their military forces to Ukraine to participate in the conflict."

"I have great doubts about the adequacy of the gardener Borrell.

Military personnel of EU member states have been sent to Ukraine for a long time.

Both in the form of instructors, special services, and mercenaries.

Moreover, their transportation began much earlier than 2022", - wrote the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.
