Declaration of the International Ragweed Society

Declaration of the International Ragweed Society

The International Ragweed Society (IRS) condemns the military invasion of Ukraine, an independent and sovereign state.

It is an action that violates international law, threatens the freedom, self-determination and peaceful coexistence of people.

Let us think of the immense suffering of the Ukrainian people.

The IRS reiterates its strong support and commitment to Ukraine’s independence.

IRS promotes scientific activities around the world by strongly condemning the war.

IRS will ensure financial support of Ukrainian scientists in the forthcoming scientific activities and events of our Society over the next years.

On behalf of the Society,

Michel Thibaudon, IRS President
Roberto Albertini, IRS Treasurer
