The Club de Madrid Urgently Calls to Stop Violence in Ukraine

February 20, 2014

The Club de Madrid is following with deep concern the unacceptable situation on the streets of Kyiv. We make an urgent call to the Government of Ukraine, the opposition parties, and all citizens and protesters to avoid confrontation and stop violence, and calls on the Government of Ukraine to resume the dialogue for a peaceful resolution of the political and economical crisis. The Club de Madrid also expresses its grief and deep condolences to all the victims of the scaled violent situation that Ukraine is experiencing.

The democratic rights of the Ukrainian citizens must be respected, including freedom of assembly and expression, as well as freedom of press. The Government of Ukraine should honor their stated policies that were requested and supported by millions of Ukrainians, and should uphold their international commitments.

The people from Ukraine, like any other citizen in the world, must have the legitimate right to choose their own future and to fulfill their aspirations, and this should be achieved through governments that represent their interests and listen to their voices.
