EUROPEAN ARBITRATION CHAMBER’S STATEMENT ON THE RUSSIAN WAR AGAINST UKRAINE
DEAR MEMBERS AND PARTNERS!
On 24 February 2022, Russia started a full-scale invasion of Ukraine, being part of its aggression against Ukraine commenced in 2014.
Europe has not seen armed conflicts of such scale and brutality for decades. Reliable evidence confirms that Russian troops are making indiscriminate attacks including air raids, ballistic missile strikes and bombings. Residential housing, utilities, critical infrastructure are being destroyed all over Ukraine. The United Nations reports at least 406 civilian casualties and 102 deaths in Ukraine as of February 28, 2022. Apart from that, hundreds of thousands of peaceful Ukrainians had to flee violence to Western Ukraine and neighboring countries.
EUROPEAN ARBITRATION CHAMBER has already been helping Ukraine by volunteering and doing what they can to help the people of Ukraine.
We are confident that all members and partners of the EAC are standing by Ukraine and seeking ways to help Ukraine.
To facilitate this, we list specific actions that we encourage you to take if you wish to further help the people of UKRAINE:
