AN APPEAL FOR PEACE

We, the representatives of the countries participating in the International Philosophy Olympiad, strongly object to Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine and demand an immediate end to the war. We are convinced that all disputes between states must be settled peacefully on the basis of existing international law and in accordance with international human rights agreements.
