Members of the International Coalition for Democratic Renewal call on Russian authorities to stop their aggression against Ukraine that has been ongoing since February 24, 2022. “We demand that the Russian invasion forces cease fire and leave the territory of Ukraine, including the occupied territories of Donbas and Crimea, immediately. Since the beginning of this war, Russia has carried out repeated attacks on civilians and civilian targets, including hospitals and schools, forcing millions of refugees to flee the country. This is morally reprehensible and a flagrant violation of the most fundamental tenets of international law.”
This initiative follows up on previous statement from February 26, 2022 and asks the international community for 8 important points.
International Coalition for Democratic Renewal (ICDR or Coalition) is a Forum 2000 Foundation project, which brings together a global group of intellectuals, activists, and politicians concerned with the expansion of power and influence of authoritarian regimes and the simultaneous weakening of democratic systems from within. The ICDR aims to reaffirm the fundamental principles of democracy, to take the offensive against the authoritarian opponents of democracy, and to demonstrate solidarity with the brave people who are fighting for freedom in undemocratic systems around the world.
