We defeated Russia in the battle for minds of the world. We have no fear, nor should anyone in the world have it.
Ukraine gained this victory, and it gives us courage which inspires the entire world. Americans gained this victory and that is why you have succeeded in uniting the global community to protect freedom and international law.
Europeans gained this victory, and Europe is now stronger and more independent than ever.
The Russian tyranny has lost control over us.
The Russians will stand a chance to be free only when they defeat the Kremlin in their minds. Yet, the battle continues, and we have to defeat the Kremlin on the battlefield. This battle is not only for territory in Europe, not only for life, freedom, and security of Ukrainians or any other nation which Russia attempts to conquer.
This struggle will define in what world our children and grandchildren we live. It will define whether it will be a democracy of Ukrainians and Americans for all.
This battle cannot be frozen or postponed. It cannot be ignored, hoping that the ocean or something else will provide protection.
From the united states to China, from Europe to Latin America, and from Africa to Australia, the world is too interconnected and interdependent to allow someone to stand aside and at the same time feel safe when such a battle continues. Our two nations are allies in this battle.
Next year will be the turning point. The point when Ukrainian courage and American resolve must guarantee the future of our common freedom. The freedom of people who stand for their values.
