Head of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine Klimkin noted that the Russian aggression against our country is still perceived by many as a "dramatic movie." He made this statement at the conclusion of the Munich Security Conference.

“After two days of immersion into the reality of the Munich security conference, there are a lot of thoughts. In general, they are optimistic, but sometimes, unfortunately, still not very bright. Russian aggression against Ukraine is still perceived by many as a dramatic movie that they watch from their comfortable sofa reality," wrote the minister.

“Obviously, this is more convenient for some of them. And this, of course, is very annoying,” Klimkin notes.

However, according to him, more and more politicians realize that “it cannot continue like this - something needs to be done with Russia.”

According to Klimkin, there is less and less security in the world and more and more security forums.

“With such a pace, the future global world risks being very angry. The transatlantic community and Europe will still appreciate the value of Ukraine and our contribution to global security and stability. And we are increasingly ready to discuss it. For me this is, in fact, the main conclusion of the current Munich forum” he added.

The Munich Security Conference has transatlantic and European roots but our activities also reflect a globalized world. It assembles more than 450 high-profile and senior decision-makers as well as thought-leaders from around the world, including heads of state, ministers, leading personalities of international and non-governmental organizations, high-ranking representatives of industry, media, academia, and civil society, to engage in an intensive debate.
