ISYP Statement on the War in Ukraine

International Student/Young Pugwash (ISYP) shares the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs’ concerns regarding the ongoing war in Ukraine. In light of the core principles of Pugwash and the pursuit of a quick and peaceful resolution to the conflict, and emphasising the need to uphold the foundational principles of the United Nations Charter, ISYP echoes the belief that “the invasion of Ukraine by Russian military forces should be reversed and all attacks against Ukraine should be stopped.” ISYP stands with those who oppose all forms of war in Europe, as well as the potential for dangerous nuclear escalation. We urge “a swift return to diplomacy and negotiation.”
