One of the most influential Jewish organizations in the United States and globally ADL (Anti-Defamation League) was founded in 1913. Its goal is to combat anti-Semitism, hatred and intolerance in all manifestations.

U.S. President Joe Biden, New York Mayor Eric Adams, FBI Director Christopher Wray, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, member of Congress in the U.S. House of Representatives Liz Cheney, actor David Schwimmer, and many other political, cultural and public figures of the USA and the world have taken the floor this year at the annual Never is Now summit of the ADL in New York.

Thanks to ADL for the invitation to the summit and the opportunity to address 2.5 thousand influential representatives of the Jewish circles in the United States.

In my speech, I stressed that what is happening today in Ukraine is nothing less than the genocide of a political nation, of citizens of Ukraine, among whom there are many Jews.

I thanked for the aid already given and urged to strengthen it. We need two-chamber and bipartisan support from the United States, we need Israeli arms supplies, and the solidarity of the entire Jewish world with Ukraine. This is necessary for everyone who does not want hatred to hit the world again, so that Never turns to Now again.
