General Jack Keane applauds European Union after they ‘stepped up’ for Ukraine

Former US Army vice chief of staff General Jack Keane has applauded the European Union for stepping up following a new support deal for Ukraine.

European Union leaders have approved a $82 billion package to support Ukraine for the next four years.

“I applaud what has happened here, and the Europeans have truly stepped up; there’s no doubt about it,” General Keane told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“I take my hat off to them.

“I’ve spent a lot of time educating Americans that Europeans have truly stepped up here, and the United States has to continue to make this commitment.”
