Statement of Alexander Temerko on the Russian invasion of Ukraine

Today, Putin’s thugs are assaulting the capital of my homeland – Kyiv. Fighting is ongoing along the whole border of Ukraine. Ukrainians, my brothers and sisters, are now defending their freedom and the freedom of Europe with their very lives. They are heroically defending their homes, their families and their choice of freedom and democracy. At the same time, they are fighting for peace for the whole of Europe. I am proud to be Ukrainian. I am glad that my second homeland, the United Kingdom, stands shoulder to shoulder in brotherly solidarity, and offers political, military, financial and humanitarian support to the Ukrainian people who fight our common enemy. I trust that the outcome of this war will result not in Ukraine’s overthrow, but rather Putin’s regime. I believe that this bloody war will not break Ukraine’s spirit, but will instead embolden the people of Ukraine and of the world to stand up to and destroy tyranny. By removing the yoke of Putin’s dictatorship, the Russian people should also have a chance to choose a path of democracy and freedom. I know that the truth and the judgment of history is with us. As the Bible says, “If God be for us, who can be against us?”
