EASSW STATEMENT ON THE CONFLICT IN UKRAINE
Due to the military actions in Ukraine supported by Russia, people in Ukraine are suffering humiliation, deprivation of basic human rights and forced internal displacement, while families in Russia have to anonymously bury their sons. The UN has stated, “armed conflict [in Ukraine] has caused great damage to the economy, the social infrastructure is ruined, and people are suffering. The winter is coming, which makes the problems of the regions especially acute” (http://www.un.org.ua/en/information-centre/news/1919).
We, as social work educators, express our compassion and solidarity with Ukrainian and Russian colleagues who are faced with all kinds of human suffering and are themselves among those who need the encouragement and moral support of European social work education communities. We stand in solidarity with social work educators of Ukraine and Russia in all their efforts “....to end this destructive conflict once and for all, to stop the bloodshed and to start rebuilding communities and livelihoods in a safe, stable and sovereign Ukraine” (Spokesman for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in statement on Ukraine, 05 Sept. 2014).
EASSW, 14 November 2014.
