CEMR condemns unprovoked Russian military build-up on the Ukrainian border towns and regions
The Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) condemns unprovoked Russian military build-up on the Ukrainian border towns and regions and continued threats against Ukraine in recent months, in a statement adopted on Monday 15 February by CEMR Committee on International Affairs.
“We express our solidarity with the people of Ukraine, local and regional governments, especially in the East of the country, who have suffered greatly since 2014 as a result of the war and are now living under daily threats of the military offensive against Ukraine while simultaneously continuing to innovate and reform the country,” the statement reads.
“CEMR, with Europe’s municipalities and regions, will continue to support Ukrainian local and regional governments and their associations. We will continue supporting the development of Ukraine through its contribution to decentralised cooperation, the growth of city-to-city and region-to-region ties”, it also says.
