INI statement on Russia’s attack on Ukraine

We are shocked and appalled by the unprovoked attack on Ukraine by Russia and the humanitarian crisis it is causing.

While our thoughts and heart-felt sympathy are with the Ukrainian people at this dark hour, we also acknowledge that many Russians are ashamed of and are protesting against this war.

To help our fellow mathematicians who have become refugees, we have initiated a Solidarity list to connect those who need help and those who are able to offer it. Some researchers in the mathematical sciences can be offered help through our special INI Programme Solidarity for mathematicians.

We emphasise that all mathematicians, whatever nationality, remain welcome to participate in the activities of the INI.
