EDP Sciences strongly condemns the actions of the Russian government against Ukraine and supports the statements of our close partner The French Physical Society, and STM, the voice of the academic publishing industry.

We stand in solidarity with all the people of Ukraine whose lives are threatened by this war. The global exchange of scholarly knowledge is essential for democracy, and we especially stand by our colleagues, the Ukrainian academics and librarians whose rights are being violated by these actions. Additionally, we pay our respects to the Russian scientific community which opposes the military actions in Ukraine.

We support every effort to immediately end this action.
