Ukraine conflict statement

We at UKDS condemn the use of force by Russia in its invasion of Ukraine.

Following the statements by IOC, IPC and other International Federations, UK Deaf Sport (UKDS) calls on the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf (ICSD) and European Deaf Sports Organisation (EDSO) to ban Russia and Belarus from all activities within their purview, until further notice.

UKDS stands by the Ukraine Deaf Sports Federation in solidarity at this difficult time. We also offer our support to the people and athletes of Ukraine.
