Dear IEEE CSS Members;
This statement of principle is precipitated by recent events and is a reaffirmation of our values as a global scientific organization.

We are saddened and deeply concerned by Russian President Vladimir Putin's unjustified and violent invasion of Ukraine.
Our hearts go out to the Ukrainian people - to those in Ukraine and to those who find themselves refugees from the conflict - and to all who have suffered from similar injustices.
The invasion is a clear violation of global norms. It goes against everything we value as a scientific community based on a free exchange of ideas and respect for all people.
