Interpeace statement on the attack on Ukraine

February 24, 2022

The ongoing incursion into Ukraine by Russian military forces is both shocking and heartbreaking. It constitutes an alarming violation of international law that needlessly places the lives of millions of civilians at risk.

Interpeace is all too aware of the devastating cost of conflict, and we join Ukrainians, and citizens the world over, in calling for an end to the violence. Dialogue and understanding are the only routes to resolving the fears, tensions and grievances that are fuelling this crisis.

Interpeace joins the international community in unequivocally condemning these attacks and in calling for the restoration and preservation of a rules-based international system. We urge all the parties to return to the dialogue table and pave the way towards an inclusive and lasting peace.
