As the eyes of the world fix upon Ukraine, I am shocked and saddened to see heartbreaking images emerge showing injured civilians staggering through the streets and towns in the east of the country following Russian bombing over the last several days. This is an unprecedented atrocity for which there is no justification. Russia’s decision to attack will bring catastrophic consequences to Ukraine. We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and with every freedom-loving democracy in condemning Russia’s military actions.
We must remember, as the National Hemophilia Foundation, that we have men and women, boys and girls who live with bleeding disorders in Ukraine, who are facing the greatest challenge of their lives, in addition to struggling to find treatment and care in the midst of this war zone.
Our community supports Ukraine, its people, and their pursuit of peace.
