WWF statement on Ukraine

Posted on 15 March 2022

WWF is appalled by the escalating war in Ukraine, which violates both the United Nations Charter and international humanitarian law. We condemn the alarming measures, extreme violence and destruction against civilians in Ukraine. Our hearts and thoughts are with everyone who is affected by this armed conflict, especially the people of Ukraine who are suffering and all those in the impacted regions.

The catastrophic humanitarian crisis is deepening rapidly and an environmental crisis looms larger with every day that the conflict continues.

Peace among people is the foundation of building a future in which people and nature thrive. We stand together with our colleagues, those affected and everyone around the world in calling for a swift and peaceful resolution.
