The Academy’s Statement on the Russian Invasion and Ongoing Violence in Ukraine
Published March 09, 2022
At the New York Academy of Sciences, we join scientists and scientific organizations throughout the world in condemning the Russian invasion and the ongoing violence in Ukraine. We endorse the recent statement made by the National Academies of the G7 States:
“In this dark hour, our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with the people of Ukraine. We are determined to support the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. We stand in solidarity with the scientific community and the scientists in Ukraine.
We acknowledge the Russian scientists and citizens who are ashamed of this attack and speak out against the war.
We call on the Russian leadership to immediately cease all military action against Ukraine and put an end to this war.”
