thank you very much for your financial donation to support our Help us crush the Russian propaganda machine project.
Thanks to your support we were able to help Ukrainian security experts in a difficult life situation. We were able to provide them with a safe base in the Czech Republic and with tools to fight against the aggressive Russian regime while their men are fighting for freedom and democratic values right in their homeland.
We have ensured that information from Ukrainian experts about the consequences of Russia's hostile behaviour towards Ukraine regularly reaches Czech and foreign decision-makers, journalists and the public. This was done through public and non-public activities, including advocacy trips to neighbouring countries and Brussels to discuss urgent needs and developments in Ukraine with other experts and government officials.
We have constantly and tirelessly highlighted the progress and consequences of the war in Ukraine, helping to counter Russia's hostile disinformation. We published regular newsletters in cooperation with Ukrainian experts. We produced a comprehensive analysis of War in Ukraine: Lessons Learned
, which aims to show practical lessons from Ukraine that can be used by other democracies facing external existential threats.
Today, 15 months after the start of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, we regret to bring this project to a close. The European Values Centre for Security Policy has presented a new direction and will primarily focus on a sustainable Czech strategy towards Taiwan and China in a European context, from both the Prague and Taipei offices of the organisation. The People's Republic of China is, next to the Russian Federation, the most dangerous enemy of liberal democracies and there will be a strategic discussion in the European and transatlantic context on how to deal with the upcoming conflict in the coming years. This is where the European Values Centre for Security Policy sees its main role and added value for the future. More information on the new strategy can be found on our website
The current security situation shows that the democratic world is under threat, but also that it is determined to fight together for freedom and democratic values. We consider it important to persevere in our fight for freedom, liberal democracy and sovereignty, and we greatly appreciate your concern. Thank you!
