SOLIDARITY WITH ALL SISTERS AND BROTHERS IN UKRANIAN TRADE UNION COMMUNITY AND ALL PEOPLE OF UKRAINE IN THIS TURBULENT PERIOD OF RUSSIAN AGGRESSION AND GUNFIRE 

Vilnius

February 24th, 2022

 

Dear brothers and sisters, 

On behalf of the Lithuanian Industry Trade Union Federation (LPPSF) community please accept our deepest concern in regards of the recent aggression from Russian Federation and sincere solidarity facing this threat. 

LPPSF condemns the illegal actions of the Russian Federation (RF) towards the Ukrainian nation, and the gross violations of international law and agreements. 

We fully support and acknowledge the statement of Ukrainian trade unions and the facts mentioned in this document: 

1. Ukraine has been resisting the Russian Federation aggression since 2014.

As a result of the aggression Ukrainian Crimea was annexed, parts of Lugansk and Donetsk regions of Ukraine were occupied. Over the last eight years of RF aggression Ukraine has lost dozens of thousands of human lives, more than 1,5 million of our citizens were forced to become internally displaced persons.

2.The President of RF V.Putin by his decree of February 21, recognized the self-proclaimed  Luhansk and Donetsk Republics as sovereign and independent states.

The recognition of self-proclaimed republics of the DNR/LNR is a violation of the international law and the destruction of security system which has been developed after the Second World War and the collapse of the USSR, as well as an act of violation on sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine with the de facto exit of RF from Minsk Agreements.

3.Besides, on February 21, RF started the official bringing of Russian troops into the occupied territory of Luhansk and Donetsk Regions of Ukraine.

The mercenary army and the occupational Russian forces with the identification signs of armed forces of self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk Republics already have been deployed illegally on the occupied territories.

4.The Ukrainian armed forces strictly observe to the ceasefire regime. So far they conducted neither military nor unlawful actions in the occupied territories.

At the same time, in the territory controlled by Ukraine civilians of Donetsk and Luhansk regions have been suffering from the constant artillery shelling from the side of the occupied territories over the las week.

Moreover, the RF is carrying out a rabid campaign to discredit the Ukrainian Military by spreading of mass disinformation, provocations, false flag shelling in Luhansk and Donetsk Regions in order to find a casus belli to start a large-scale war.

5.The official position of Ukraine, which has been announced many times, grounded on the search of political and diplomatic way of returning of occupied territories. 

On behalf of LPPSF unions I declare responsibly that our organization will support the Ukrainian comrades and contribute all the possible assistance. 

I also appeal to all trade unions community in Lithuania to provide the solidarity and information support to the Ukrainian public in the fight against the RF aggression, and to prevent a large-scale war in Europe. 

 

In solidarity,

 

Dalia Jakutavičė

President

Lithuanian Industry Trade Union Federation
