CIA Statement of Support

for the People of Ukraine

The Center for International Affairs (CIA) at California State University Channel Islands stands in solidarity with Ukraine and the people of Ukraine. Since Feb 24th, Ukraine has been the target of an unprovoked and unjustifiable invasion.

The members of the CIA are concerned about the devastating loss of life as well as the tremendous suffering and harm done to innocent civilians. We applaud and embrace the Ukrainian people who are exceptionally resilient and courageously defending their nation and values.

CIA is calling for an immediate end to this invasion and the atrocities that have followed. Together we stand in unity to support the people of Ukraine and members of our CSUCI community who are affected by the war. The Ukrainian people are in our hearts and on our minds.
