I have been profoundly affected by the war in Ukraine. I along with so many in the global community am shocked at one nation’s unfettered aggression and malignance, while astounded at another’s unconquerable bravery and tenacity.
Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine poses an existential threat to the sovereign nation and its 44 million citizens. With the exception of a short list of rogue states like Iran, North Korea and China, the entire world appears united in condemnation of the illegal actions of Vladimir Putin. NATO and the EU continue efforts to create some sort of countermeasures that don’t leave the entire world in further peril. Just this week, Congress passed a bipartisan spending bill that includes $13.6 billion in aid to Ukraine.
Industry, thought leaders, and global citizens have united like never before against the Russian invasion – and the fight against the oppressors and support for Ukrainians has taken some unique and innovative forms.
The situation in Ukraine is constantly evolving, but will continue to be extremely volatile and dangerous for any foreseeable future. While the danger and bloodshed are enormous, the unprecedented support from the global community is awe inspiring.
