Together with the rest of the world, IFATCA remains deeply concerned about the unprovoked attack on Ukraine and the impact on the country’s population, including our colleagues and their families. As shown throughout history, armed conflict and aggression are never a solution. IFATCA urges all involved to cease hostilities, respect international agreements and de-escalate the situation immediately through negotiation and mediation.
In the meantime, many Ukrainians are seeking refuge in neighbouring countries, where they find help and support from countless volunteers. These include IFATCA Member Associations supporting friends and colleagues from Ukraine by arranging transportation, providing lodging in their homes and donating other material support using their own resources.
Having received requests for support from these neighbouring associations, IFATCA has decided to use the account of the European Support Fund to collect and distribute funds to assist them in providing support. Individuals that wish to financially support the efforts of their colleagues in providing support are encouraged to contact their Member Association for more details on how to contribute.
