About the event
Australia has condemned Russia's invasion of Ukraine as being unprovoked and unjustified and a breach of international law. It has joined its western allies in imposing sanctions on Moscow. Australian political leaders have harshly criticised Russia's actions. Defence Minister Peter Dutton and Foreign Affairs Minister Marise Payne have called for Russian President Vladimir Putin to be investigated for war crimes over civilian killings in Ukraine. To date, Australian assistance to Ukraine has included $A65 million in humanitarian funding and $A165 million in Defensive Military Assistance. In April, the Morrison Government announced it would supply Ukraine with 20 Bushmaster Protected Mobility Vehicles.
With the war in Ukraine becoming a battle of attrition, Ukraine has asked for more Australian assistance. The question is: What more can this country do?
