After echoing the suffering that the people are enduring months later of the invasion of Russia, the King has announced the serious consequences that the conflict has over the economy, especially in the face of an energy crisis with a serious impact on industry, commerce and transport, as well as on family economies. “The whole new scenario that we are experiencing – the war, the economic and social situation, the instability and tensions in international relations – is logically causing great concern and uncertainty in our society. But we cannot renounce that things can change and improve,” he said. To achieve this improvement, her majesty reiterated that the first thing we must have is confidence in ourselvesafter four decades of modernization and transformation, always endorsed by the Constitution, on which values did you want to launch a remark trust messageFaced with the three great risks that, in his opinion, modern democracies currently face, among which the Spanish one “is not an exception”: the division of the country, the deterioration of coexistence and the erosion of institutions. VI I wanted to stop and fully enter into the analysis of those three threats, without mentioning cases, names or specific situations, as is logical, but very clearly when warning that “a country or a society divided or in conflict does not advance, it does not progress or solve its problems well, it does not generate confidence. The division makes them more fragile to democracies; the union, on the contrary, strengthens them”.

Thats the reality. We are Europe, but we also need Europe, which is our great political, economic and social frame of reference and which, therefore, offers us certainty and security.
