In the coming year Ukraine will still need considerable international support. Russia’s war in Ukraine is still ongoing, and has changed into a war of attrition. Ukraine’s armed forces continue fighting every day for the freedom, protection and prosperity of their nation, and thus for that of European countries as a whole.
