The Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies at Carleton University is deeply shocked and saddened by the invasion of Ukraine ordered by the Russian government and supported by the government of Belarus. We condemn this violation of international law and the sovereignty of Ukraine as an independent state. We urge the Russian government to stop all military actions and to facilitate resolution of the humanitarian crisis that this invasion has caused. Our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people, as well as those from Central Europe and Eurasia—including those who oppose the war in Russia and Belarus—who suffer the consequences of Russia’s invasion.
