2023 NATO Public Forum | Day 1 [11 July 2023]

Gary Kasparov: “People who want to leave from Putin’s ‘North Korea’ and move to our virtual ‘South Korea’ have to say three things in five seconds without stuttering: the war is criminal, the regime is illegitimate, Crimea is Ukraine.

“The whole idea that you can negotiate peace is impossible. Not every war ends at the negotiating table. War on values can not end at the negotiating table. … There’s no negotiated outcome if you have two very opposite set of values. Putin wants to bring the world back to ‘might is right.’ Ukrainians fighting … the only war NATO was built for, which is defending for Europe.‘”
