Russia must not be allowed to participate in the international energy resources trade


On February 24, 2022, my life changed. The life of every Ukrainian changed.

Living through the cruel and inhuman war and being under occupation have forced me to see differently the role of law as a social regulator.

Words such as human rights, freedom, rule of law and justice have taken on a different, more real meaning.

Having seen all these horrible and extremely cruel war crimes committed by Russia in Ukraine, the whole world should realize one thing: Russia has nothing in common with the civilized world.

The only way to stop the war is to deny Russia any opportunity to participate in the international trade of energy resources.

This step must be taken immediately, before it is too late.
