John Kerry, the US special presidential envoy for climate, joins the panel and thanks Boris Johnson for mobilising the English language in support of Ukraine.

Kerry tells the audience he was a child of World War 2, and remembers seeing war damage when he visited Europe in the late 1940s. Growing up in Berlin, he played in bunkers

with his friends (“probably ill-advised”, he admits). Later in life, Kerry says he fought in a war [Vietnam] which based on lies, on distortion and paranoia, not the war

for freedom it was presented at. No-one in Ukraine who has picked up a weapon has put their lives at risk for a mistake, Kerry insists. Kerry says we must learn

the lessons of Anschluss, of Munich, of appeasement, and the subjugation of the Iron Curtain. Putin has not learned those lessons, and is engages in a personal

initiative, against the facts, against legitimacy and the rule of law, adding: “I believe the stakes here could not be higher.” Putin has made a colossal

mistake, by trying to go back to the kind of world that existed in the 1940s, 50s and 60s, Kerry adds. Kerry challenges delegates at the World Economic Forum to do

more to help Ukraine, We should never come to Davos again and have a meeting if we are not prepared to fight for the principles that are at stake in Ukraine, Kerry

insists.
