When we are standing as a united front – impossible things become possible, — Kira Rudik in the interview for ALDE

The main lesson of russia's full-scale invasion and the fact that Ukraine not only withstood but also resists and is able to defeat the aggressor is unity. Unity both within the country and the unity of allies and partners. An MP of Ukraine, leader of the Golos party, and vice-president of ALDE Kira Rudik emphasized this in the interview for ALDE.

«The main thing here, undoubtedly, is the lesson of unity. We would not be able to be where we are if Ukrainians were not united against the enemy, and if the rest of the democratic free world wasn’t behind us. This war has taught us a lot about leadership, about those moments when you have to carry more than you can bear, and when you have to defend what you believe in. The EU has understood that we need to go above and beyond to help defend our shared European values. And the goal is not to defend them only in Ukraine but in every single country where these values are in danger», — stressed the leader of Golos.

Today, Ukrainians are united not by hatred of the enemy, but by hope for victory. Western allies also feel this. At every meeting, assurances of readiness to support Ukraine as long as necessary are heard. And this is what gives strength to continue the fight against the aggressor.

«Hope is the fuel that we are running on. Sometimes it’s rage, fear or pain but most of all it is love and hope. So many people in the West have opened their hearts and homes for Ukrainians and pushed their governments to help us. This is so inspiring», — summed up the MP.
