Statement of the Czech Mathematical Society and the Czech National Committee for Mathematics

The Czech Mathematical Society and the Czech National Committee for Mathematics express their deep concern about the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We strongly appeal to the International Mathematical Union to immediately cancel the International Congress of Mathematicians planned to be held in St. Petersburg in July 2022. In any case, we do not intend to send any of our representatives to participate at the ICM, and we shall emphatically discourage all our members and all Czech mathematicians from participating.
