Solidarity with Ukrainian lawyers and other Ukrainian citizens
Lawyers for Lawyers is gravely concerned by the news about the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation. We condemn the actions of the Russian Federation, which are in contravention of the international law which prohibits the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of a state. These actions are a direct threat to the rule of law. We hope for a swift end to hostilities and our thoughts are with all those affected.
We specifically express our solidarity with Ukrainian colleague lawyers and others who contribute(d) to strengthen the rule of law in Ukraine. We also express solidarity with the Russian people who oppose their government’s invasion of Ukraine, and lawyers who are defending the rule of law in the region.
