We stand with Ukraine

As Liberal Democrats, we believe in internationalism, democracy, and the right of people to live without fear. Ukraininan President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s party is our sister party, and we are proud to stand alongside him and promote our shared values. Our party is pushing for the fiercest possible sanctions on the Russian Government. Lib Dem leader Ed Davey, who urged BP to pull out of Russian oil company Rosneft, is calling on all other British companies to follow suit. Our priority is to help the Ukrainian people.
