Oleksiy Danilov: the West must assist Ukraine to defeat russia

The West must provide all necessary weapons to Ukraine so that it can prevail over russia.

This was the message by Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine at the 16th Annual Kyiv Security Forum established by the Arseniy Yatsenyuk Foundation “Open Ukraine”.

“I am hundred percent certain that we will win, and I definitely know what country the Ukrainians wish to see. I am also dead certain that we have real friends and partners”, - Oleksiy Danilov emphasized.

He also stated that it was for centuries that russia tried to instill the narrative in the West that Ukrainian nation does not exist. For centuries, russia was “rewriting history and books that can now be found in all “Stanfords” and “Oxfords”.

“Speaking about future one should definitely recollect the past. This is terribly important. Still, no one wants to re-visit the past. Indeed, some have thought that we as the nation did not exist. russia was not alone in hatching such ideas,” – he stressed.

Oleksiy Danilov also underlined that russia will be decolonized.

“The Americans will make another mistake again if they fail to understand that decolonization of Russia is to be carried out in the most near future,” – he pointed out.

Security and Defence Council Secretary is certain that Russia will be decolonized automatically, and free and independent states will rise in its former territory in line with the UN Statute.

The 16th Annual Kyiv Security Forum is held March 21-22, 2024, to gather transatlantic support for Ukraine. This year Forum slogan is “Ukraine’s call to the World: Together We Prevail!”.
