IUPAP Statement on the events occurring in Ukraine

| 22 March 2022

Through ICFA, the ILC International Development Team is connected to the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP).  We would like to share with you the following statement that the IUPAP Executive Council published on their web page concerning the current tragic war situation in Ukraine:

“We are consternated by the news regarding the Russian military offensive in Ukraine and the terrible consequences 
that this has on the lives of our colleagues in Ukraine.  We extend our deepest sympathy and solidarity to them and to all the Ukrainian people at this difficult time. We praise the large number of Russian colleagues who have expressed their sympathy for their Ukrainian colleagues and demanded peace for their countries. In our 100th anniversary this year, we note the critically important historical role that IUPAP has always strived to play in bringing physicists together across political divides even during our most difficult years in the past. IUPAP continues to embrace and promote scientific collaboration across the world as a driver for peace.”
