World Economic Forum Awaits President of Ukraine

On 23 May, Volodymyr Zelenskyy to speak at the economic forum in Switzerland

In 2022, the World economic forum returned to real meetings after a long quarantine over Covid-19. But one guest of an important event will be connected online. It will be the president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy. It is worth mentioning that the head of Ukraine often addresses foreign governments, but he has not left Ukraine since the beginning of the war (February 24, 2022). Deputy prime minister Mykhailo Fedorov and mayor of Kyiv Vytalyi Klychko will come to the event on behalf of the Ukrainian government. The president of Ukraine himself will open the event on May 23 on a video link.

It is assumed that the difficult situation in Ukraine will be the main topic of discussion at the economic forum. This decision of the world organization is justified by the terrible consequences for all the countries of Europe. The fact is that Ukraine is growing a large number of cereals that can not grow and produce in many countries of the world.

"The world is at a historic turning point, and this requires us to urgently and quickly address the current geo-economic and geopolitical challenges," said the head of the forum Yan Tsopf.

Recall that the Russian Federation, with the help of its soldiers, blocked Ukrainian grain, ready for export. The war has also disrupted logistics chains that facilitate the rapid transfer of goods to partner countries.
