Support for the Ukrainian people against Russian aggression
European NGOs call for support for Ukrainians
The signatories of the Appeal (go to https://www.togetheragainstwarinukraine.fr ) are aware that, faced with the Russian military aggression against Ukraine decided by President Putin, in defiance of all international laws, the future of Ukraine and that of Europe are linked.
The people of Europe must remain united and determined to confront this unacceptable aggression against a free people, to stop the fighting and to restore peace.
That is why we call on NGOs representing organized civil society to join us (see link below) in calling on the member states of the European Union and the Council of Europe to increase their pressure in order to get Russia to stop its acts of war and its crimes against the Ukrainian people and its legitimate, democratically elected Authorities.
This Appeal will be transmitted with your signatures by priority to the Ukrainian ambassadors to the European institutions, European Union and Council of Europe, but also to Unesco and the International Organization of the Francophonie, to confirm them that the European civil society is mobilized behind the legitimate Ukrainian authorities and behind the Ukrainian people.
We call on the signatory NGOs to do the same to the Ukrainian ambassadors present in all the member states of the European Union and the Council of Europe.
We will also communicate this Appeal to the political leaders and parliamentarians of the European Institutions to make them aware of the will of the organized civil society to maintain and increase, when possible, the efforts to suppress the access of Russia to the benefits of international exchanges in all their forms, whether they are diplomatic, economic, financial, sports, cultural, educational or scientific
