According to Sirle Sööt, Chairman of the Association of Estonians in Sweden, we must talk about Russia’s crimes, European security and the global information war all the time and with a loud voice. This is especially important now that Ukraine is fighting for all our democratic values and freedom. The conference brings together politicians, journalists, diplomats, researchers and civil society activists, all of whom have the power to explain and increase understanding of history and the current situation.
