Civil society expresses solidarity with the Ukrainian people and condemn Putin’s War

We civil society organisations, including national umbrella bodies from across the world, stand united in our condemnation of Russia’s military aggression toward Ukraine in gross violation of international law. We deplore the targeting of civilian populations and infrastructures by Russian forces, which amounts to war crimes.

We remain deeply concerned about the Russian government’s duplicity in lying to the international community about the intentions behind its military build-up prior to the invasion of Ukraine. We recognise that there are plenty of voices of conscience within Russia who oppose Putin’s war on Ukraine. We deplore the attacks on civil society, the independent media, the political opposition and others expressing democratic dissent by Putin’s extreme nationalist regime.

We recognise that Putin has triggered a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. His regime bears responsibility for the deaths of thousands and displacement of millions in what could amount to crimes against humanity. We demand an end to the military aggression by Russian forces and their withdrawal from Ukraine. We urge an end to activities by state and non-state actors that could benefit Russia’s military infrastructure and occupying forces.

We believe the people of Ukraine have the sovereign right to live in peace and determine their own future. We urge members of the international community to stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and demand accountability for the commission of violations of international humanitarian and human rights law. We call for a redoubling of peace efforts to bring an end to the conflict to enable the Ukrainian people to resume their lives in peace. 

In Solidarity,
