Three weeks ago, the unbelievable happened: war returned to our European soil. The Russian military aggression against Ukraine is not a limited and peripheral conflict, but a high intensity war causing enormous human suffering, loss of life, and physical destruction.  It is conducted by a sovereign State against another sovereign State and against its population, whose right to possess its own identity and to live freely and independently is denied by the aggressor.
