Ukraine can win the war, according to American actor Liev Schreiber
Ukraine can win the war against Russia, but it will be a long fight and the conflict must not be allowed to fade into the news, Hollywood actor Liev Schreiber said Monday in Davos.
“It’s amazing how resilient the Ukrainian people are,” Schreiber, whose grandfather was of Ukrainian and Polish descent, told Reuters TV on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum.
The actor and director spoke after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy addressed global business leaders in the Swiss resort, urging countries to tighten sanctions against Russia as a warning to those who consider using brute force.

The president’s speech kicked off the four-day meeting which brings together some 2,000 business and economic leaders as well as experts, with Ukraine high on the agenda.
Schreiber, who directed the 2005 film “All Is Illuminated” in Ukraine, is best known as series protagonist Ray Donovan. He said it was only a “matter of time” for the Ukrainians to win, but the conflict must remain in the news.

“It could go on for a while and there is a danger that it will disappear from the news cycle … and I think we have to remember that these people are fighting for their lives right now for the values and the principles that we let’s share, I think, as Europeans and Americans,” he told Reuters TV.
“In terms of what is needed, support, financial support, strategy, rebuilding – all of those things are a perfect fit, I think the World Economic Forum.”
