The TRIO-Presidency of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region strongly condemns the unprovoked, illicit and unjust military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine. The military acts violate international law and agreements, undermining the European and global security and stability. Above all, these actions cause loss of life and suffering of the people of Ukraine.
The EUSDR stands for freedom, peace and cooperation to improve the life of the people in the Danube Region. Ukraine is a sovereign state and an equal partner amongst the 14 EUSDR member states along the Danube, from the Black Forest to the Black Sea.
The TRIO-Presidency of the EUSDR expresses its solidarity with the people of Ukraine and calls to immediately cease the hostilities and to seek solutions by diplomacy. Casualties and destruction of regions must stop immediately.
The EUSDR stands by the people, friends and partners in Ukraine.
