The article will stress the price which Ukraine had to pay for its democratic choice. It also argues that the war has become a test of Western democracy, since the Russian invasion not only breached the Russo-Ukrainian treaty of 1997 and the Budapest Memorandum of 1994, but also undermined the foundations of the world order and the essence of democracy. With the signs of declining democracy in the West, along with a volatile political situation, there is a need to redefine the arguments which would strengthen the Western support for Ukraine. This can be done through a reminder of the core values of democracy, and by juxtaposing them with the atrocities happening in Ukraine. To discuss this matter, the author is presenting the “Report on the Human Rights situation in Ukraine” by the OHCHR, which testifies not only on the casualties and horrific losses Ukraine is undergoing daily, but also on the state of global democracy in the world.
