VACCELERATE and its partners strongly condemn Russia's attack on Ukraine in violation of international law. The Russian invasion of Ukraine is an indescribable assault on the pillars of our society: freedom, democracy, self-determination and integrity. Our full solidarity goes out to the Ukrainian people.
To express this solidarity, we have decided to deactivate the sites from Belarus and Russia that are represented in the VACCELERATE Site Network. We do not know individual political views and we apologize for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, in this situation we cannot make individual decisions but have to take a clear position. The protection of our values is paramount for us.
We hope that the political situation will change as soon as possible, so that we will be able to reverse this decision.
