The New York State Bar Association condemns the violation of the rule of law in Ukraine and calls upon the Russian Federation to refrain from taking further measures contrary to international law.

As an organization of legal professionals in over 100 countries, the New York State Bar Association has a special duty to promote, support, and protect international law and the rule of law. We call upon other international legal profession to affirm its support for these basic principles of international law.
