In this difficult moment, as Secretary General of the Executive Secretariat of the Central European Initiative, I wish to express our solidarity with Ukraine and its people, and our support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country, a valuable Member State of the CEI. I hope the respect for the principles of international law may still prevail. Condemning the military action against Ukraine, we stand by its Government and citizens. - SG Roberto Antonione
