The support of African countries is important for the isolation of russia in the world, — Kira Rudik at a speech at the Africa Liberal Network
Depriving the enemy of his few allies is the same task for the Ukrainian diplomatic front, as is the stable support of our partners. African countries are important for russia's isolation in the world, so Ukraine should strengthen its African foreign policy strategy, building diplomatic bridges at all possible levels. This was said by the leader of the Golos party, vice-president of ALDE, MP Kira Rudik at the General Assembly of the Africa Liberal Network.
«The whole world needs the truth about what russia is doing in Ukraine: detailed information and facts. African society is not an exception, but too based on the dominance of russian propaganda narratives in the local mass media. The aggressor continues to use Africa to show that sanctions do not work, and there is still someone in the world who wants to talk to putin.
We are working on the complete isolation of russia in the world. And it is important to enlist the support of African countries in this context. We need to strengthen Africa's foreign policy strategy by building diplomatic bridges at all possible levels», — emphasized the MP.
According to Kira Rudik, the tasks of working at the General Assembly of the Africa Liberal Network are to consolidate political support for Ukraine from the countries of the Global South, to convince African liberal partners to take real actions in support of Ukraine and international security, to call for us to defend international peace, security and territorial integrity together with us and strengthen Ukraine's position in the Global South.
«We insist that any war-fighting capabilities of the aggressor must be limited. In addition, Africa is a platform for the sale of goods and services of the russian federation, as well as access to resources. All this helps fill the russian budget. And accordingly, to finance the war», — emphasized the leader of Golos.
The Africa Liberal Network General Assembly is the largest annual meeting that brings together senior liberal African leaders to network, share best practices and review the work of the network across the African continent.
