Alert statement on Ukraine / Russia

“We urge immediate de-escalation and the protection of civilians in Ukraine. 14,000 lives have already been lost since 2014. Increased military action will only cause more devastation, and will do nothing to break the long-term cycle of violence or build peace. Now is the time to step back.”

Statement issued on behalf of Nic Hailey, International Alert Executive Director, on 22 February, 2022.
