Council statement on Ukraine


Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine as they suffer grievously under this abhorrent act of war by the Russian regime.

We look to our government to act decisively on the international stage while at a local level we shall do what we must to support the Ukrainian people.

We stand ready to welcome refugees displaced by the conflict.

We will also do what we can to avoid purchasing items or services supplied from Russian companies, given the flagrant law-breaking of their own state, and we urge all other local authorities to do the same.
