IAAIL statement on the continuing war in Ukraine

The IAAIL has been shocked by the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the human suffering this has caused: millions displaced, thousands dead and cities in ruins. First and foremost, we would like to express our solidarity with the people of Ukraine, taking special note of the academic community and the impact this has on them and their families. We further express our support for those Russian academics who are against the war, whether they have actively spoken out against it or not. Like many scientific communities around the world, we dedicate ourselves to respect, dialogue and open collaboration.
