Europe and European politicians should make every effort to do so, and not refer to any legal arguments, lack of political will and not look for reasons why Ukraine cannot win this war, she said.

"This (rhetoric), I think, is a threat that we see in all meetings, not just these days, but in the coming days, at next week's European Council," Metsola said.

"I don't want to hear those words, or people saying 'We need to be able to answer how we are going to save face for Putin. I don't want to hear the word 'pacification' ever again.'"
