The invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation is a criminal attack on the foundations of peaceful coexistence in Europe. We condemn it without ifs and buts.

In recent years, we have been able to experience time and again in our cooperation with our partners in Ukraine and Russia how much they strive for peace and reconciliation. These testimonies are an important inspiration for our work and give us hope for the future. Today, however, we must first defend independent Ukraine and stop the war. We therefore declare our solidarity with Ukraine and all people in Russia who oppose the criminal actions of the Putin regime.
