FECRIS statement

On 24 February 2022, the armies of the Russian Federation invaded and attacked Ukraine without any respect for international rules. This aggression against Ukraine, a sovereign state, was immediately condemned by the various European and international institutions.

This invasion as well as the retaliatory measures taken by the Russian President against the dissident Russian civil society and the threats formulated against the States opposing his war policy, lead FECRIS, European Federation of Research and Information Centres on Sectarianism, INGO with participatory status at the Council of Europe, member of the Conference of INGOs of the Council of Europe and member of the UN, with Ukrainian and Russian associations in its midst, to join in the condemnation of the Russian military aggression against the Ukrainian population and legitimate authorities. FECRIS joins the various NGOs in supporting the unjustly affected Ukrainian civil society.
