Statement on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine
In the early morning of 24 February 2022, Russia’s president Vladimir Putin declared war on Ukraine. Russian armed forces were deployed into Ukraine to seize control of the territory of a sovereign democratic State and remove its democratically elected leaders. 

We condemn in the strongest possible terms this unprecedented military aggression against the State and people of Ukraine. This unprovoked attack and deployment of Russia’s armed forces into Ukraine’s territory is a crime under international law. There is no excuse or justification for this criminal action.

We call on Russia’s president to immediately cease the hostilities, withdraw Russia’s armed forces from Ukraine and fully respect Ukraine's territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence. 

We wish to express, in these terrible moments, our unconditional support to all our Ukrainian members, their families and their friends, praying with all our might that the barbarism and disaster that an armed conflict always generates cease immediately, thus avoiding more bloodshed and suffering. We extend our prayers and support to the brave people of Ukraine, especially those who are in the invaded zones in which the Russian military aggression is currently taking place. 

INSOL Europe stands firmly by Ukraine and its people as they face this unparalleled crisis.
