STATEMENT OF THE EMLTD AGAINST THE WAR IN UKRAINE
The European and Mediterranean League against Thrombotic Diseases (EMLTD) condemns the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation military forces. This aggression led by President Putin and his government against an independent country is also an attack to the democratic principles of Europe. The unnecessary loss of life and forced migration of thousands of people, including children, are a crime against humanity.
As an international Scientific Society committed to promote research and educational cooperation among countries, the EMLTD cannot accept any type of premeditated action bringing catastrophic loss of life and human suffering. The EMTLD expresses its solidarity with the Ukraine people and the Russian citizens that protesting against the war within Russia are risking their lives. EMLTD calls for an immediate end of the war.
