When I say that the empire doesn’t care how many people will die, I mean this. The level of support for the war by “ordinary Russians” increased by 4% from December to January. Ukraine needs weapons. The world must demonstrate that to make war is bad, and self-defense is good.
The solidarity campaign to support Ukraine in our fight for freedom started in Latin America. Famous writers and intellectuals from different countries of the region joined and made video statements. You can find all of them in this resource #AguantaUcrania👇 https://t.co/QhNcONUvRq
I like this photo that Daniel Mordzinski took last week. The photo shows how the first year of the large-scale invasion made my hair gray. I'll accept it because we can't bring back the past. But what is more important is that we continue to fight for the future.
It’s a great news! The film "A House Made of Splinters" was nominated to the Oscar Award. It has been filming in Donbas for more than two years. An important story depicts the lives of children growing up in the midst of the war with the adults trying to protect them. 1/3
The frontline medics much require armored evacuation vehicles. Only during the previous month, the Pyrohov volunteering mobile hospital handled more than 2200 patients. The absolute majority of them were severely wounded. 1/3
Let’s be honest. When the bigger country invades the smaller country, and you don’t help Ukraine to defend itself, it means that you allow Russia to occupy Ukraine. Austria and Hungary must protect international law. I hope that it’s a temporal decision and they will change it. https://t.co/c7rO1X8e3V
Today my friend Belarusian journalist Andrei Aleksandrov has a birthday. It’s his third birthday in jail. Lukashenko's regime imprisoned Andrei for 14 years for false accusations. If you want to send him a letter, I add the address in the first comment.
I was glad to meet Secretary General Marija Pejčinović Burić. She has pledged full support to our struggle for justice. Tomorrow delegates of PACE will have an urgent debate on human rights aspects of Russian aggression. It’s time to transform political will into decisions.
It’s awful. Women have a right to education. We live in the digital era. We can find a way to help women and girls in Afghanistan continue their studies. What does UNESCO do in this regard? https://t.co/3dNaNTBK0V
The problem is that Olaf Scholz doesn’t only refuse to provide Ukraine with battle tanks. He refuses to allow other countries to send Leopard tanks to Ukraine. Germany must #FreeTheLeopards

Yes, Germany has a special responsibility in this regard. Germany was a part of the Normandy format to stop this war after the Russian invasion to Crimea. But parallel, Germany was continuing to build Nord Stream 2 with Russians. Time to #FreeTheLeopardshttps://t.co/zhyu47XQ02

The hesitation of the democratic leaders result in deaths every day. Russia will stop killing only when Russia is stopped. Putin attacks when he sees weakness. Olaf Scholz should make a responsible decision and provide Ukraine with modern tanks. It will save thousands of lives. https://t.co/mX7w1upEi5
This is 23 y.o. Nastya. Russians killed her boyfriend in autumn. Now Russians have destroyed her home. She still doesn't know what happened to her parents and her pet. She holds New Year’s decorations in her hands while waiting for rescuers.

Putin and the military pilot who hit the building with a rocket still believe they will not be punished. We must establish an international tribunal now. The idea that sooner or later, they can be judged will have a cooling effect on RU brutality. It’s mean to save a lot of lives
If we need sustainable peace, we must restore justice. Cruelty, terror, rapes, tortures, murders of civilians, etc., are unacceptable. Even such a horrible thing as the war is not an excuse. https://t.co/J5FN3tsjmU
A vivid symbol that life is reborn. A girl dances in front of Banksy's graffiti in Irpin. Russians severely destroyed this city in the first months of the large-scale invasion to Ukraine.

It’s time for the Council of Europe to take decisive steps to restore the rule of law in our region. Putin and other Russian war criminals must be punished for the war of aggression. We must stop Russian war crimes against civilians in Ukraine and other countries of the world. https://t.co/7Tjq97N3Wh
One year ago. Last peaceful days in Kyiv. So many people are still alive. So many tears have not to jet been shed. Putin and other Russian war criminals who have already prepared for this armed aggression must be tried.
We can’t return to our past. But we can create fair future.
If anyone still has illusions about Russia's intentions, this video from Russia’s New Year special is for you. They openly promote their goal to occupy other countries. Russia will continue to kill civilians resisting occupation. Russia will stop only when Russia will be stopped https://t.co/LRoEqyIOHe
Anna Netrebko with the flag of "Novorossiya"("DPR" & "LPR"). Next to her is the terrorist Tsarev, who is sanctioned by the EU.
Anna Netrebko will participate in Wiesbaden May Festival 2023.
I call on Germany to ban her from entering the country because of her support terrorism!
Russian missile hit a residential building in Kharkiv city center at 11 pm. Massive explosion made me jump out of the bed. The building is heavily damaged and on fire. There are reports of dead and wounded. Bloody terrorists.

Parliament will always defend the values of respect, human dignity and hope.
Great meeting Oleksandra @avalaina, my dear, courageous colleague and friend. Important discussion on the need to better support #humanrightsdefenders and deliver accountability for #humanrights violations resulting from the war in #Ukraine.
„C’est ce qu’il faut faire parce ce que c’est ce qui est juste“ Ravi que l’assemblée parlementaire du Conseil de l‘Europe @PACE_News ait soutenu à l’unanimité mon rapport sur l’agression de l‘Ukraine et la nécessité d’établir la justice suite à l’appel de la prix Nobel @avalaina
Nobelin rauhanpalkinnon voittaneen ukrainalaisen The Center for Civil Liberties -järjestön vetäjä @avalaina puhui Euroopan neuvostossa. Mieleen jäi mm. siteeraus vaimolta, jonka miehen Venäjä tappoi: ”hän oli tavallinen maanviljelijä, mutta minulle hän oli koko universumi”.
Thank you Oleksandra for your impressive speech. You are right that we need to fight for democracy, freedom and rule of law. (Head of center of civil liberties Ukraina, Nobel peace prize) @avalaina@NewsFromTheCoE

"No one chooses where he or she was born but we all have a choice whether we want to be active against human rights violations or remain indifferent to it. I have decided to be among the active ones" says #2022PeacePrize@avalaina in strong & moving address to the committee. https://t.co/trN1VdODRi

491 days since the Taliban banned teenage girls from school. 30 days since the Taliban banned women from going to university.
This #EducationDay, amplify the voices of girls in Taliban-ruled Afghanistan - the ONLY country on earth where girls education is banned!
Honored to introduce Ukraine's Nobel laureate @avalaina, a powerful advocate for human rights and justice who uses her strong, clear voice to set out how Ukraine will win both the war and the future, at @ksfopenukraine.
