The International Organisation of Employers (IOE) strongly condemns the unilateral use of armed force, wherever it occurs, which disrupts world peace, the global multilateral order, and territorial integrity, values on which the United Nations was built. It urges the Russian Federation to immediately and unconditionally respect the territorial integrity, borders, and sovereignty of Ukraine. These are the same values that the world business community, through IOE, respects, and works tirelessly to uphold. These values are also the fundamental pillars for prosperity and the economic and social development achieved in recent decades, unknown in previous eras.
