As the business voice of Europe in Canada, EUCCAN, its member chambers and member companies unequivocally condemn the violence and aggression of the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia.

We support the sanctions taken by the EU, Canada and their partners towards Russia, after Putin’s unprecedented and unprovoked military attack against Ukraine.

EUCCAN is fully committed to a peaceful world in which people can live without fear of war or foreign invasion. It is critical for the social and economic benefit of all to live in a peaceful world where international norms and rules are followed and borders and sovereignty are respected.

We continue to hope for a quick end to the hostilities and the resumption of peace.

We stand with government of Ukraine and the people of Ukraine.

Adrian Thomas, EUCCAN president on behalf of EUCCAN Board members and EUCCAN members
