Statement by the Royal Society of NSW on Ukraine

Royal Society of NSW The Royal Society of NSW, an inclusive learned institution founded on the principles of liberal democracy, encourages discourse and the free exchange of ideas that respect religious, political, and cultural freedoms.

The Society condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine as a brutal assault on such values and on the Ukrainian people. It presents a real threat to democracy.

The Society will continue its century-old exchange of information with Russian intellectuals as an important means to support freedom of thought in Russia and give encouragement to those committed to a free, open society.
