The whole world has been constantly watching for terrible military attacks in Ukraine since February 24. Russia unleashed the full-scale war. The aggressive military forces are also acting against the civilian population. Russian rockets and bombs attack residential districts, usual and maternity hospitals, kindergartens, schools. The world became a witness of Russian attacks against nuclear power plants in Ukraine. All these actions are assessed as war crimes. The International Criminal Court has initiated the investigation of these crimes.
The mentioned acts revealed the real intention of the Kremlin to suppress and destroy our independence, democracy, and freedom by terrorism and genocide in Ukraine. These intentions are not limited to our country and relate to all civilized world. Unfortunately, due to political and social circumstances, most Russians support aggressive attacks by believing Kremlin lies and propaganda published by local presses.
Many countries and world companies have been imposing sanctions against the Russian government and businesses to stop the mad bloodshed. We, Ukrainians, do our best to defend the country and peace of the European continent. The members and volunteers of IIA Ukraine do not stay outside of these events. As conscious representatives of society, we recognize to stopping the madness soon requires the huge efforts of all world communities. That is why we ask Global IIA, the heart of ethical principles of the profession, to impose sanctions against IIA Russia based on suspending the membership and certification programs. It will not be able to terminate criminal intentions against Ukraine immediately but, at least, can attract the attention of the professionals to this vital issue and may help to prevent other crimes against people.
Please help us to save Ukraine and the peaceful principles of the world now. Don’t be silent and indifferent. Don’t stand outside of the issue.
The President and CEO of IIA Ukraine,
Board members: Vadym Kharchenko, Maksym Korolyov, Maksym Pomerko, Liudmyla Kalinchuk, Olexander Fedotov, Yuliy Shchukin, Dmytro Sergiyenko, Tetiana Ruban
