Latest Press Release

Thursday, October 6, 2022

This is my first trip back since 2015. Obviously, a lot has changed. Many of the reforms that were quite nascent back then have kicked in. And, obviously, the war has come to Kyiv – Putin’s invasion –  the horrific atrocities that have devastated so many communities in Ukraine. So, the resiliency of the people: completely inspiring; the devastation wrought needlessly by Putin and his forces: heartbreaking – those are my initial impressions.
