On Thursday, 24 February 2022, the Russian Federation invaded Ukraine, and is continuing its unjust war, shelling and attacking civilians and infrastructure, including the largest nuclear plant in Europe. This invasion threatens Ukraine’s sovereignty and the common values held in Europe and in the democratic world. Ukrainian President Zelensky has stated that the Ukrainians are fighting and dying not just for their families and a better future for Ukraine, but also for Europe. Russian troops represent a threat to other regions, where American and other NATO lives may be at risk.
As we unite around the globe for peace, your support and voices are critical in helping to end this calamity. We call on the entire international community to apply all possible measures to stop this uncalled-for aggression.

On March 4, 2022, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, stated that over 1.4 million Ukrainians have become refugees, approximately 50% of them children.
