Dear, Colleagues, Partners and Friends, We are speaking to you on behalf of all Ukrainian people who are now facing the hard and tragic reality of war533
Dear, Colleagues, Partners and Friends,
You should know that since the 24th of February Russia started the full-scale war in Ukraine.
The military forces of the Russian Federation fire mostly on the civilian population and civilian infrastructure, taking lives every hour and leveling entire cities and villages.
Russian troops are also targeting objects of national and historical memory, violating all norms of UNESCO’s international obligations. President Zelensky twitted: “Why to repeat “Never Again” for 80 years when the bomb falls if the world remains silent?”.
A Belarusian column of 33 units entered the Chernihiv region, located north of the capital Kyiv, on March 1. Every next moment Belarusian forces may try to invade Ukraine’s northwestern territories.
We are speaking to you on behalf of all Ukrainian people who are now facing the hard and tragic reality of war.
PLEASE, abandon partnership with Russian and Belarusian psychotherapeutic associations and psychotherapists who have not publicly condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
PLEASE, publicly declare your position.
PLEASE, help Ukraine the way you can help (pray, donate, share information or your knowledge).
Putin’s war crimes, and Russia’s crimes against humanity, will be punished but only when the Russian people realize their complicity. For this to occur, the Russian educational and psychotherapy sectors must realize its failure to fulfill its primary function and its mission: to develop a humanist worldview. If tyranny and aggression win, we will all feel the consequences. As this destructive war continues, we call upon you not to stand aside, and we ask our international Partners and Friends to support what is True and Right.
Your professional decisions these days will shape our world and directly affect the lives of millions upon millions of people.
We hope for your support!
Teachers and students of the psychology and psychotherapeutic department (UCU), who instead of learning help people to survive the war
