Yurii Sheliazhenko: ‘War is a problem, not a solution’

Speech at the Brussels Peace Conference (19 May 2022)

We should challenge the stereotype of military victory insisting on historical truth that all efforts to conquer absolute power were failed painfully no matter how self-righteous conquerors were, that nobody can win everything even under pretext of good cause, that all power should be reasonable and fairly shared and, therefore, we can’t and don’t need to win, we can and need to win-win.
