The Network of the Presidents of the Supreme Judicial Courts of the European Union and the European Councils for the Judiciary resolutely condemn the severe breach of the international law and aggressive act of war committed by the Russian Federation against the Ukraine. They appeal for a return to civil forms of debate that respect international law, human rights and the principles of democracy and the rule of law. The Networks express their utmost concern for the people of Ukraine and their solidarity with the Ukrainian people and their judiciary.
They will, to the extent possible support the Supreme Court of Ukraine, the High Council for Justice and the entire Ukrainian judiciary, in dealing with this most serious crisis. The Network of the Presidents of the Supreme Judicial Courts of the European Union and the European Councils for the Judiciary call on all EU member states and EU institutions to take on all means and resources that the rule of law places at their disposal to end the injustice.
