COHE condemns the attack on Ukraine in violation of international law
Berlin & Zurich, March 15, 2022
The European College of Human Ecology has always considered itself responsible for a human ecology that is dedicated to the peaceful and safe coexistence of all people on this earth. The founders of human ecology also took into account their terrible experiences of slavery and the American Civil War. The work in and on the community of Jane Addams, John Dewey, William Isaak Thomas and Robert Ezra Park, for example, stood and stands for this
On February 24, 2022, Russia's power elite, under the leadership of Vladimir Putin and with the support of the Belarusian power elite, launched a military invasion of Ukraine in brutal violation of the Un Charter's prohibition of the use of force (Art. 2 para.4) and also in complete contradiction to and in grave disregard of agreements such as the Charter of Paris (1990) or the Budapest Memorandum (1994).
In the name of the human ecological tradition, we appeal to all parties involved, but especially to those responsible in Russia, to call off their war, to withdraw their troops and not to allow any further loss of innocent human life. We appeal to the international community to do everything possible to return to the path of diplomacy in this conflict.
