Almanca hakkında soru

I scratched my head a bit when I saw Ursula von der Leyen (a German) say in English that Ukrainians were willing to fight for the "European perspective." I wasn't sure what she was trying to say with that choice of words, but then I saw in a German article the following sentence: "EU-Kommissionschefin von der Leyen hat nochmals dafür geworben, der Ukraine eine Beitrittsperspektive zu ermöglichen." In looking up the word "Perspektive" in a German dictionary, it appears that it has an additional meaning that the word "perspective" does not have in English, namely "prospect, opportunity or chance." Is this correct? If so, this word appears to be a "false friend" and source of confusion.
