The world needs to change strategy from just giving Ukraine everything to fight to providing us with everything to win, — Kira Rudik for The Hill

In order for full-scale wars not to be repeated in the future, the aggressor, the russian federation, must be fully punished. Now, this means giving Ukraine everything to win the war. Ukrainian MP, «Golos» party leader, ALDE Vice President Kira Rudik emphasizes this in her opinion for The Hill.

«Everything that the Putin regime has done, is doing, and will continue to do is a consequence of the weak reaction of the leaders of the free world. russia is now like a school bully who insults other children in the cafeteria. He does not understand the words of the teacher «don't do it», but he will stop if he receives a real punishment for his actions. The aggressor should be punished by providing Ukraine with long-range missiles, the necessary amount of ammunition and shells, heavy equipment, and fighter jets. Put the security of the democratic world ahead of pre-election battles. All this should be done quickly and in sufficient quantity. Because school bullies are afraid of power and understand only power», — the «Golos» leader explains. After so many years of grueling war, there is no other way out than the victory of Ukraine. And this victory is needed by the West as much as by Ukraine. «A return to the old approaches, to «business as usual» is impossible. The democratic world, its values, and its way of life are threatened. We all require decisive action, perhaps even more radical than that taken at the start of the full-scale invasion. Ukraine must win this war. And this victory is necessary not only for Ukraine but also for the entire democratic world. But this world should change its approach from just giving Ukraine everything to fight to providing Ukraine with everything to win», — the MP sums up.
