Vladimir Putin’s invasion brought mass destruction to Ukraine and its people and has dealt a blow to Europe’s security. While Ukraine stands firm, the West has displayed unprecedented unity and support for Ukraine and against Russia—with the UK playing a leading and vocal role in supplying Kyiv with humanitarian, financial, and military assistance.
The West’s support has been critical to Ukraine’s success, but the war is far from over. Moscow has increased attacks against Ukraine’s cities and civilian infrastructure and prioritized dissolving transatlantic unity on Ukraine. As Ukraine and the West approach winter and economic and energy crises loom, unity will remain critical to Ukraine and the future of the Western security order. Ukraine’s counteroffensives in the east and south continue, but officials have already stressed the need for additional Western support to continue pushing Russian forces out of the occupied territories.
As a vocal supporter of Ukraine and transatlantic unity during his premiership, Boris Johnson joins the Atlantic Council to discuss the importance of Western unity and support for Ukraine and what more can be done against the threat Russia poses.
The discussion will take place over Zoom, YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. To receive the event information, please register via the link below.
