Pointing to the implications of a Kremlin victory, US Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told a Munich Security Conference panel led by DW’s Tim Sebastian that arms shipments to Kyiv needed to be sped up to ensure Moscow is defeated. A successful outcome in Ukraine for Russia would also "embolden China" McConnell added. McConnell said that if it was up to him he would approve the delivery of F-16 fighters from the US to Ukraine. The veteran Republican lawmaker said the West had taken a "holiday from history" after the Cold War until the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Other guests on the panel included Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov, and French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna.
