Statement from UDW Executive Director Doug Moore on the Conflict in Ukraine

March 8, 2022

“UDW offers our union’s whole-hearted support to the people of Ukraine as they face a violent attack on their country from Russia under the immoral leadership of Vladimir Putin. All people deserve peace and self-determination, and Russia’s move to violently remove Ukraine’s democratically elected government and regain control of the region violates the rights of the Ukrainian people and threatens world security.

We also stand with those in Russia who are risking their own safety and freedom to oppose these attacks and will suffer not only from their own government’s actions but as a result of economic sanctions by countries around the world. 

As a union of caregivers who have dedicated our lives to the health and safety of others, our hearts are breaking at the pointless and unforgivable suffering caused by Russia’s aggression and the centuries of imperialism that led to it. We urge our local, state, and national leaders to pursue a path toward peace in Ukraine that respects not only Ukrainian sovereignty, but the rights of all people worldwide to live in just and equitable societies.”
