Although the word “tanks” was heard more often at this year’s Davos than the subject of the forum suggests, there were also loud economic statements. Like the talk about tanks, those statements also concerned Ukraine.

At the traditional breakfast in the Ukrainian House, two such statements were made at once, and both were from the top international financial institutions.

Larry Fink, CEO of the world’s largest asset management company BlackRock, said that he was not only ready to invest in the recovery of Ukraine, but had already begun to work out the specifics. Fink sees post-war Ukraine as a kind of “beacon of capitalism.”

Similarly optimistic about Ukraine’s post-war future is David Solomon, CEO of Goldman Sachs, the largest investment bank, often referred to simply as The Firm in the financial circles: “There is no doubt that as the recovery progresses, there will be good economic incentives for real profit and real investments.”

The fact that the world’s largest investors are making plans for Ukraine can only mean one thing: no one doubts our victory.
