Managing both conflicts will be a struggle, said Luigi Scazzieri of the Centre for European Reform, a think-tank. “The EU will have to divide its attention and financial resources between Ukraine and Gaza. Ukraine will be overshadowed, and it will be harder for the EU to agree to providing large amounts of macroeconomic and military assistance to Kyiv.”

...“The narrative that the EU is guilty of double standards and hypocrisy is set to grow stronger as the number of dead civilians in Gaza rises,” said Scazzieri. “That will make it harder to rally consensus for Ukraine in international fora.”
