Thank you, Dear Forbes, for your great dedication and support for Ukraine. Thank you dear @moiraforbes @mikabrzezinski and @randall.lane
I’m deeply grateful for that.
A year ago, when I attended the Forbes 30/50 Summit in Abu Dhabi, we spoke about the situation in Ukraine. There were panels with Ukrainian women leaders, where they appeared to the world for support to stop the Russian aggression. This year First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska took part in the Forbes 30/50 Summit in Abu Dhabi. In addition, at a special Forbes gala evening, Olena Zelenska received the Torch of Freedom award.
I came to Abu Dhabi just directly from the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
Together with an independent delegation of Ukrainian women leaders to the United Nations I attended the General Assembly gathering and CSW Forum and appealed at the United Nations to the global audience for peace in Ukraine and support for humanitarian action. We stressed landmine contamination in Ukraine, which needs the support of the international community. As an initiator of the “One Mine One Life” global campaign and movement for a mine-free world, humanitarian, and philanthropist I organized the Parallel Event during the NGOCSW Forum assisting the Sixty-Seventh Session of the Commission on the Status of Women in United Nations: “Young Change Makers – Future Moral Leaders with the Global Goals Spirit” together with Svitlana Salamatova – President of the Geopolitical Alliance of Women, Head of the Ukrainian Women in the UN Project, Head of the independent delegation of Ukrainian women in the UN.
During the Parallel Event “Young Change Makers” the independent delegation of Ukrainian women to the United Nations together with global humanitarian leaders, diplomats, philanthropists, young change-makers, and internationally recognized peace activists appealed for peace and humanitarian assistance.
