In the short film, she speaks about being born in former Yugoslavia, "a country which thrived under cultures from the West and Russia from the East." During her time in Ukraine, which she visited for work a few years ago, she "got to know the people there", describing them as "strong" and "dignified".
About the invastion, she says: "I have full solidarity with [the Ukrainian people] on this impossible day. An attack on Ukraine is an attack on all of us. It’s an attack on humanity and has to be stopped."
