On 22 March, at 2 pm, the Center for Liberal Moder­nity in coop­er­a­tion with Naftogaz Ukraine and the Ukrain­ian Fed­er­a­tion of Employ­ers of the Oil and Gas Indus­try invites you to our Webinar to discuss the current sit­u­a­tion in Ukraine and the urgent steps to support Ukraine.

Since the start of the Russian war against Ukraine on Feb­ru­ary 24th, thou­sands of civil­ians and sol­diers lost their lives, and even more, were wounded, mil­lions of people are dis­placed and fleeing. Infra­struc­ture in dozens of cities was inten­tion­ally destroyed. Ukraine’s esti­mated losses from the destruc­tion caused by the Russian inva­sion already account for over USD 100 billion, plus new damages every day. While the Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary is bravely defend­ing the country, more deter­mined inter­na­tional support in all dimen­sions as well as tougher eco­nomic sanc­tions against Russia are urgently needed to stop Putin’s war of aggression.

In this webinar, Ukrain­ian and German experts from pol­i­tics, busi­ness, and civil society will discuss (1) What, in terms of loss and damage, is the impact of the Russian war against Ukraine up until now? (2) Which finan­cial, mil­i­tary, human­i­tar­ian, and polit­i­cal steps must be taken in order to help Ukraine sustain its independence?
