The International Centre for the Prevention of Crime, whose mission is to promote the most effective strategies and practices in the prevention of crime and violence, strongly condemns the unjustified violation of international law, norms and principles committed in the context of the invasion of the state of Ukraine.
For the past few weeks, the country has been facing an international conflict undermining the security of communities and respect for norms and standards of human rights and justice. The use of force in Ukraine is an act of aggression and a threat to peace and security in Europe and the world.
The ICPC expresses its solidarity with the people in Ukraine as well as with those fleeing the country, their relatives, women, children, the elderly and other vulnerable groups facing such suffering.
We would like to emphasize the importance of advocating for the efforts of local governments and leaders, along with the international community, to support the people and collectively engage in order to achieve peace.
