On 10-11 November,a representative of the Ukrainian Security and Cooperation Centre took part in the forum “Ukraine – Changing Epochs” in Inzel (Germany).
A number of important events directly affecting Ukraine’s national security and defense took place in October. In particular, the publication of a letter of appeal “Memorandum to the President of the United States” signed by more than 40 national security experts from the Atlantic Council think tank and the US President’s address to the American people.
In October, the ratification of Sweden’s NATO accession application by the Turkish parliament is expected. Sweden submitted the application last year, but besides the Kurdish issue, the controversial actions of burning the Quran have also had a negative impact on the relations between the two countries. The escalation of the conflict did not go without Russia’s interference.
On 11 September, in Munich, the Ukrainian Security and Cooperation Center held a panel discussion on Russian disinformation in the West. The speakers discussed why the Russian-Ukrainian war in 2014 was called the “forgotten war” and how successful Russian disinformation campaigns were in Germany.
The discussion raised the issue of the effectiveness of the Western countries’ adherence to the sanctions packages against Russia, their impact on the economy and military capabilities of Russia.
