In other news we are proud to stand by the nations of The Principality of New Masovia and The Kingdom of Volletnia in releasing a statement regarding the ongoing and developing situation in Ukraine.
On February 21, 2022, Russian President Vladmir Putin signed a decree, recognizing the independence of the so-called Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics. Following this, President Putin ordered Russian military forces into the region, outside the borders of Russia.
These actions represent a clear violation of Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty, and are a violation of international law. We the undersigned, denounce these actions in the strongest terms possible, and call upon the Russian Federation to cease all hostilities, to withdraw its troops from Ukrainian sovereign territory and from the border regions of Ukraine, and to return to the negotiating table in order to find a diplomatic solution to this crisis.
