By Benjamin Flowers: The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has joined a growing number of international bodies that have condemned the recent military attacks by Russia on Ukraine.

The CARICOM Secretariat issued an official statement this morning noting that the community “strongly condemns the military attacks and invasion of Ukraine by The Russian Federation and calls for the immediate and complete withdrawal of the military presence and cessation of any further actions that may intensify the current perilous situation in that country.”

CARICOM reminded Russia that its actions violate the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, and that the principles of respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity, non-interference in the internal affairs of another sovereign state and the prohibition on the threat or use of force, and the peaceful resolution of disputes are the bedrock of the Community.

“CARICOM maintains that the principles of universal respect and adherence to these norms and principles of international law are fundamental to the maintenance of the international system and global peace and security,” the community added.

CARICOM called on all parties involved to urgently seek diplomatic actions that would de-escalate the situation and work towards a peaceful resolution.

Several countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom have also registered their discontent with Russia’s decision, assuring severe economic sanctions were not far behind. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin warned today that if any nation tries to assist Ukraine with military interventions, his country would bring about consequences that “have never been seen in history.”
