We strongly condemn the current unilateral military attacks in Ukraine that are costing and destroying lives and violate international law at the moment.
 
We stand in solidarity with all those wanting to have peace and we urge for dialogue to resume and military intervention to stop.
 
We stand with our network in Ukraine and Russia who are at their level trying to be the change under these horrific circumstances.
