Event Description

Organised by the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs in collaboration with the Europe Institute at the University of Auckland. 

His Excellency Mr Vasyl Myroshnychenko, recently appointed Ambassador to Australia and (Designate) New Zealand, makes one of his first public appearances in this country. The Ambassador will provide the Ukraine Government's latest appraisal of the war and the international community's response. He will provide views on what the New Zealand Government and the broader public can do to help. He will also discuss Ukraine’s bilateral relations with Australia and New Zealand, including military cooperation, trade, investment, culture and education.

Since February, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has brought death, destruction and suffering, causing millions of people to flee their homes. The shockwaves have been felt around the world including in New Zealand, where the Government and broader public have rushed to understand the implications for the international system, and what this country should do in response.

This event is organised by the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs in collaboration with the Europe Institute at the University of Auckland.
