The Executive Board of the International Federation of Neuroendoscopy is shocked by the Russian aggression against the Ukraine. In the 21st century, war is not an option to solve conflicts of interest. Each nation has the right of territorial integrity and sovereignty and diplomacy should be enforced to resolve differences. We demand an immediate cessation of the war to prevent further unnecessary suffering and deaths. Not only soldiers, but also innocent civilians including children and women were already killed by Russians troops. These horrible acts need to stop immediately and need to be condemned.
Our Russian colleagues stand on the same line of thought with us, and we feel a strong sense of solidarity with our members in the Ukrainian neuroendoscopic society and will support them as much as possible.
