The international coalition is able to withstand all the challenges caused by russia's war against Ukraine — Kira Rudik
russia's full-scale war against Ukraine affects the entire world: the economy, food, and energy security. And a strong united international coalition can counteract this. This was emphasized by the leader of the Golos party, vice-president of ALDE, MP Kira Rudik, speaking at an exclusive event on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly From Ukraine to America: Strengthening Recovery Against Global Shocks.
«The russian war not only led to a tragedy in Ukraine, but it also shook (and sometimes destroyed) the destinies of the young generation. We are facing one of the most challenging winters in history, but this proves once again that the aggressor must be stopped quickly because its wars have a negative impact on the life of the entire West.
russia has caused global consequences for the whole world: tariffs for energy resources, prices for food and other goods, and flows of disinformation that must be fought. All this can be opposed with a united front. Only a joint international coalition will be an effective driver in the fight against the shock caused by the heathen», — emphasized the leader of Golos.
The event where Kira Rudik spoke was organized by the Atlantic Council's Eurasia Center and Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center. The key topic of discussion is the consequences of a full-scale russian invasion of Ukraine for youth and future generations around the world.
«We are often asked about peace. But we do not like and do not even tolerate this word anymore. Our word is victory. When we see successes, everyone who donated, helped, volunteered, or made political decisions to provide weapons, I want you to look in the mirror and understand that this victory is yours. The goal remains the same — the international coalition must be united in countering russian aggression», — Kira Rudik emphasized.
In addition to drawing attention to the consequences of a full-scale war and raising awareness of the situation in Ukraine, the event raised important topics: threats to food security, the energy crisis, and the fight against misinformation about the consequences and causes of this war. Participants included businessmen, government officials, media representatives, and opinion leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean, the United States, and Europe.
