Solidarity with Ukraine

At the invitation of the FES, a high-level delegation of members of the ukrainian Parliament, civil society activists, journalists and think tanks reported first-hand on the war in Ukraine, its consequences for human rights, the social situation, the economy and global food crisis. International support for Ukraine and the role of the USA as the key ally of Ukraine's independence, freedom and democracy were mainly discussed.

In addition to Senator Bernie Sanders, the group had also the pleasure to meet Congressmen Steve Chabot (R-OH), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), Veronica Escobar (D-TX), Jim Costa (D-CA) and Brad Sherman (D-CA) and representatives of the State Department and the Pentagon. With this information and dialogue program, the FES supports international exchange and solidarity with Ukraine.

The delegation also visited UN HQ to meet Rosemary DiCarlo, Under-Secretary-General, UN Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs, and Ghada Mudawi, Acting Operations Director, UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. The role of UN in preventing humanitarian crisis and peacebuilding was also discussed with  Sergiy Kyslytsya, Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the United Nations. An interesting talk with Ryan Heath, Editorial Director, Global Growth, POLITICO,  and Richard Gowan, UN Director, International Crisis Group, highlighted the geopolitical perspective. An event in International Peace Institute focused on the role of women in resistance to the Russia's aggression. 

Overall, the Ukrainian delegation stressed once again the need for the world to unite in the face of neo-fascism for protection of western values and to strengthen global security system.
