PRESS RELEASE BY THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT

In light of developments that took place in Ukraine early this morning, President George Vella expresses his grave concern and conveys his support to the Government and People of Ukraine. 

This escalation, and in particular the events that are being reported, represent a threat not only to the people of Ukraine but also for European and global stability. 

President Vella joins other authorities and international actors in calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities, a withdrawal of military forces from Ukraine and for the full respect of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, sovereignty, and independence. 

All efforts should be made for restraint to prevail, for the full respect of international law, and to avert the real risk of further deterioration of the situation.
