In the face of Russia’s military assault on Ukraine, the ESEM community strongly condemns the brutal violation of international agreements and the standards of social and political integrity in this world.
War means human tragedies and the annihilation of invaluable cultural heritage, archival collections, monuments and other cultural and scientific resources.
We join the demands for an immediate end to the aggression and withdrawal from the internationally recognized borders of Ukraine.
We express our deep solidarity with the entire Ukrainian people.
To our colleagues, Ukrainian ethnomusicologists, we wish to say:
WE ARE WITH YOU!
