We strongly condemn the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation and offer our deepest sympathy and support to all those affected by the brutalities of war. The humanitarian crisis resulting from this invasion is completely unacceptable, and we call upon world leaders to do everything within their powers to stop any further loss of life and suffering.
We join the international scientific community, including those in Russia who have spoken out against the war, in calling for peace.
Entomology is a global and collaborative science. We continue to support the scientific freedom of academics, practitioners and students everywhere.
