Statement of the European Shareholders of FAIR GmbH, except Russia

March 17, 2022

The European Shareholders state that the invasion of the sovereign state Ukraine is an unacceptable violation of the international law by the Russian Federation. This is incompatible with the peaceful intention of the FAIR Project and its spirit of international cooperation. The European Shareholders condemn the ongoing war against Ukraine and as a reaction suspend the existing, long-standing cooperation immediately, even though this cooperation is fundamentally in the interests of all sides. All current and planned activities with Russia are being frozen and subjected to critical review. There will be no new activities until further notice.

We express our personal appreciation towards our Russian colleagues with whom we cooperated successfully and on a trustful basis for the past years. We hope that at some point in the future we will be able to meet again to continue our fruitful and peaceful cooperation in FAIR.
