Statement on Ukraine by Music Society Presidents

We condemn the military invasion of Ukraine launched by Vladimir Putin. In this difficult time, we offer support to scholars, practitioners, and culture workers throughout the affected region and to those who have family in or cultural ties with Ukraine. In the cultural and intellectual work our societies foster, including research on and performance of music from Eastern Slavic lands, we seek to connect, support, and include scholars and artists across borders. We stand in solidarity with people of good conscience everywhere and actively seek to make our societies places of refuge and mutual understanding.
