Russian Maritime Law Association and its Members are Against the War

2/3/2022

Russian Maritime Law Association and its members are against the war and for the peace between Ukraine and Russia. We call for immediate termination of all military actions.

In the morning of 24 February 2022, Vladimir Putin announced his decision to carry out the so-called “special military operation” in Ukraine. Russian Maritime Law Association (RUMLA) opposes all military actions.

We believe that there is no legal or political justification that would allow troops to enter the territory of another state. Any military actions result in the loss of lives. We cannot and will not support or justify human suffering. The decision to launch the military actions is contrary to the interests of both Russia and Ukraine, and humanity. The negative consequences will be borne for many years to come.

We call to stop the war in Ukraine and a return to reason and legal mechanisms to resolve the conflict. We express our condolences to all those who are now going through suffering and loss, pain and sorrow as a result of the war.
