The International Memorial Society for Education in History and for Human Rights has published an open letter to Russian Federation President Putin demanding an end to Russian aggression against Ukraine

To the President of the Russian Federation

Dear Mr President!

The actions of Russia against Ukraine come under the definition of aggression given in the resolution of the General Assembly of the United Nations of 14 December 1974. At the present time matters have reached a point where Russian military service personnel are directly taking part in military actions on foreign territory against the lawful authorities of a neighbouring country.

We demand an immediate end to Russian aggression against Ukraine.
