Oleksandra Matviichuk: Fighting for peace in Ukraine

From Saturday Morning, 8:10 am on 24 February 2024

This weekend marks two years since Russia invaded Ukraine, a war that has killed tens of thousands of people since.

The grim milestone comes amid waning international support for Ukraine. It's also a week since the death of jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny and only weeks out from the Russian presidential election.

Oleksandra Matviichuck is a Ukrainian human rights lawyer, head of the Center for Civil Liberties, and was the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize Recipient.
