ECPM is deeply concerned at Russia’s military action in Ukraine.“This action threatens not only the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine, but peace and stability in Europe. We condemn this act of aggression against Ukraine”, ECPM Vice President George Rukhadze said.
According to him, the European Christian Political Movement recognizes and fully supports Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and calls on the Russian government to stop deployment of the Russian troops on Ukrainian soil, which is a clear violation of international law. “These actions from the Kremiln might provoke further escalation and result into casualties if Ukrainians decided to resist the invasion, which is their fundamental right”, Rukhadze was quoted as saying.
The ECPM calls on the EU and US Leadership to coordinate international diplomatic effort and support from international partners and institutions for addressing the crisis, and encourages tougher measures against the Kremlin if Moscow does not stop aggression against Ukraine.
