2.4. To appeal to the members of their Beekeepers’ Associations of the world, all five continents to call for informational and humanitarian support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and all Ukrainians who courageously oppose the brutal military aggression of the Russian Federation in Ukraine.

THE ARMED FORCES OF UKRAINE are desperately and heroically defending their land, their people.

 

BUT all actions are aimed at protecting the entire European community, because Ukraine is a path for the Russian aggressor to European countries.

Infrastructure facilities are being destroyed by the Russian aggressor throughout Ukraine, and residential areas and private houses of civilians are under fire.

Everything we have been building for years is collapsing instantly and brutally!

 

BUT THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT OF THE UKRAINIAN PEOPLE CANNOT BE DESTROYED!

WE believe in the victory of Ukraine!

HEAR US Ukrainians, hear us Ukrainian beekeepers!

Be in solidarity with us!

 

WE BELIEVE that the position of the world community of beekeepers and beekeeping specialists will be in favor of PEACE in Ukraine and in the world!
