“We watch with anguish and despair as the people of Ukraine face war, loss of life, and the prospect of loss of land, and loss of freedom.

Ukraine is a sovereign state and its people have the absolute right to determine their future. The military conquest of another state’s territory under the pretext that the invader is protecting inhabitants of the same ethnicity, has a dark and sinister history. It is difficult to comprehend how such acts could be contemplated by the Russian Federation, which has itself known such devastation from foreign invaders.

Russia’s actions are a flagrant violation of the most basic norms of international law and constitute a clear breach of international peace and security.

We express our deep concerns for the Jewish community in Ukraine and hope that all Ukrainians remain resolute in the face of these grave challenges and take comfort in the knowledge that the world is with them.”
