Joint letter by ESU, EUL and Open Republic to President of the Russian Federation
Eesti Üliõpilaskondade Liit
Dear President of the Russian Federation Mr. Vladimir Putin
Federation of Estonian Students Union and youth organization Open Republic, together with the European Students’ Union, call upon the world leaders and international organizations to find peaceful solutions to the current events in Ukraine.
The 20th century´s atrocious wars should remind the international community that selfishness and power demonstrations can never be a peaceful settlement of conflicts. Occupation of a sovereign state’s territory and the flagrant violation of the international laws and practices can never be acceptable under any circumstances.
We condemn the Crimean occupation and Russia’s continuous attempts in order to fissure Ukrainian society. We demand respect towards Ukraine’s sovereignty and immediate departure of foreign troops. We express our support for the preservation of Ukraine´s territorial integrity and we ask the international community to assure any necessary assistance to Ukrainian people.
Sovereign right to decide for their future can only be in the hands of Ukrainian republic and its people!
