Joint Call from Civil Society: Choosing the Right Path at this Turning Point in History
Civil society call for solidarity and a strong commitment to the ecological and social transition for resilience, energy independence and peace.
Russia’s war against Ukraine is a horrific act of aggression and a failure of diplomacy. It is a turning point in history - for Ukraine, for Europe and for the international order. The conflict has demonstrated the lengths to which the Kremlin will go to push its agenda. It has also revealed the EU’s deeply compromising dependence on Russian fossil fuels. We cannot ignore that we live in a world where autocratic regimes can and will wage war and seek to undermine the multilateral democratic order. Our way of life, politics and governance need to adapt to this new reality.
