One year of war in Ukraine

24 February 2022 will be remembered as a watershed moment. The regime in Moscow launched a full-scale invasion of a peaceful neighbouring country, violating the UN Charter and the rules-based international order. Norway’s security, too, has come under threat. As we mark the one-year anniversary of Russia’s attack on Ukraine, the Norwegian Government wishes to pay tribute to the Ukrainian people, who are fighting a fierce battle both for their own country and for freedom and democracy in Europe.
