A statement on the Ukraine crisis

The war in Ukraine deals a new blow to human rights in the region and causes an immense lot of suffering. We express our solidarity with Ukrainians, and those on both sides which will suffer from the loss of freedom and the consequences of the war. In this context we recall the case of Azat Miftakhov, who remains imprisoned in a penal colony on trumped-up political charges. We ask the IMU to reconsider the choice of Saint-Petersburg for the 2022 ICM, and we welcome the February 22 AMS statement making that suggestion.
