“I cannot speak today, at this very proud moment in my life, from this extraordinary rostrum, without acknowledging the evidence of what is happening in Ukraine and showing my support for the Ukrainian people, and my support for the people of Russia standing up to the kleptocracy and idiocy of its leaders to try to stop the progress of this atrocity,” Cumberbatch told a group of reporters.
