24 February 2023 marks one year since the beginning of Russia’s illegal, unprovoked and unjustified full scale invasion against Ukraine. Russia’s barbaric war of aggression has caused untold suffering to the indomitable people of Ukraine. It has also affected millions of people around the world, including in the Global South.
As we mark this somber milestone, we reaffirm our full support for Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders, as well as Ukraine’s right to defend itself against Russian aggression.
We condemn in the strongest terms Russia’s ongoing aggression against Ukraine and demand the unconditional withdrawal of Russian forces from the internationally recognized territory of Ukraine.
As partners, friends and allies, we express solidarity with the people of Ukraine and commend their courage and determination in standing up to Russia’s invasion. Russia must be held to account for the crimes and destruction committed in Ukraine.
Our countries will continue providing political, economic, military and humanitarian support to Ukraine for as long as it takes. We commend Slovakia’s steadfast stance against Russia’s actions, the generous welcome given to Ukrainians forced to leave their homes, and the supply of equipment to help Ukraine defend itself.
For peace, freedom and democracy to prevail in Europe, Ukraine must triumph. We stand with Ukraine.
