Dear members of the project, dear colleagues and friends worldwide,
Russia attacked Ukraine. Let us not be misled by the Russian government’s rhetoric calling its attack on Ukraine “special military operation”. This is a war against an independent state and its people, plain and simple. The project consortium condemns this war unreservedly. Our thoughts are with our Ukrainian colleagues and the Ukrainians who have been affected by the war. We stand together with people of all persuasions who oppose the war in Ukraine. Political differences must always be resolved at a negotiations table. The attacker’s position is invalidated by its action.
We appeal to people affiliated with the project and beyond who share our position to make it public and to help Ukraine in these difficult times. Every little help counts.
We must unite and look beyond citizenship for the sake of the higher goal of peace and freedom.
