Statement on Russia's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine

We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine at this time of great crisis. As a sovereign democratic state, Ukraine has the right to make its own future security arrangements by joining NATO, which is unarguably a defensive and not offensive organisation. Russia's brutal suppression of democracy throughout its sphere of influence has reached a new level of depravity. Resistance to this is growing across the world as the implications of Russia's neo-colonial aims become clearer. The use of barbaric force against innocent civilians is a favoured tactic of the Russian military. The world is watching, and Russia's crimes against humanity are being carefully recorded for the future day of reckoning.

Meanwhile, we urge everyone to support Ukraine by boycotting Russian products and services.
