Statement of Support of Ukraine by the Triological Society, 3/7/2022
The world is presently in the midst of a tragic and threatening situation. A democratic country, Ukraine, has been invaded by a Russian force, guided by a ruthless leader, which is attempting to advance its position with no regard for human life and its destruction of civilian populated areas. The almost absolute condemnation of this action has been voiced worldwide and demonstrated in the United Nations. There comes a time and situation when people and institutions should not remain silent and should support courageous leaders and people who are standing up against this onslaught.
We believe that it is appropriate for our profession, and specifically the Triological Society, to declare that we are in full support of Ukraine, a brave country that is struggling to fight domination and control by a ruler who is focused on destruction by any means and who is intent on ultimate control of their society. Winston Churchill once said “You may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” With this said, Ukrainians deserve our Society’s recognition and support.
