OAS condemns Russian attack on Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity
Russian President Vladimir Putin has launched an invasion of Ukraine early Thursday morning and the Organization of American States (OAS), which Guyana is part of, has condemned the attack on Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
See full statement, translated from spanish, issued by the OAS General Secretariat:
The General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (OAS) condemns the Russian Federation’s invasion of Ukraine and calls for an immediate cessation of the hostilities that it has irresponsibly initiated.
Russian aggression constitutes a crime against international peace. The armed attack perpetrated against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine is reprehensible and constitutes a very serious act in violation of international law.
Aggression has been defined as the “supreme international crime” and it undoubtedly constitutes an attack against the peace and security of humanity, as well as civilized relations between States.
