Franciscans International stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine

The Russian invasion and military operations in Ukraine are clear violations of international law and in particular of the UN Charter. There is no doubt that this aggression is also turning into a terrifying human rights crisis.

As Franciscans we know that violence and war must never be tolerated. We join the Ministers General of the Franciscan First Orders in their call for peace and stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and our brothers and sisters that remain in the affected regions.
