The PSI and EPSU Condemns Russia’s Assault on Ukraine

The Public Service International (PSI) and European Federation of Public Service Unions (EPSU) condemn the attack of Russia on Ukraine. In a joint press release, they stated that they condemn the violation of the integrity of Ukraine. War and occupation bring suffering for workers, for their families and communities and this is what is happening to people in Ukraine as bombs fall and they seek shelter or flee from the violence. This includes hundreds of thousands evacuated to Russia. They further stated that consequences of the conflict will also impact people in Russia and Europe. They support the call of Ukrainian trade unions and the Secretary-General of the UN to ask Russia to immediately stop the attack and to take the Russian army back to Russia. Negotiations are the only way forward to bring lasting security, democracy, respect for human and trade union rights, peace and prosperity for the people in Ukraine, Russia and Europe. They stated that their thoughts are with their comrades in the Ukrainian unions and have received the first reports of attacks that affect union members as well. They stand with the Ukrainian workers and with the trade union movement and will mobilize for peace and stability in Ukraine and in Europe. They stand with all public service workers called on to treat the casualties of war. PSI and EPSU call on the European Union and the international community to provide support and asylum for the people fleeing the war zones.
