Standing in Solidarity with Ukraine

Dear Molecular Imaging Community,

The World Molecular Imaging Society is horrified by the shocking violence and loss of life as a result of unprovoked aggression led by Vladimir Putin. It is with great sadness and disbelief that we watch the current military actions that are being carried out in Ukraine. These actions are unwarranted and initiated under the justification of a lie. The WMIS condemns this attack on democracy.

We stand in solidarity with Ukraine, its people, and Ukrainian imaging scientists as they face efforts to destabilize their nation. We also stand in support of the many courageous Russian citizens who condemn Putin’s actions as they put their own personal safety at risk for democracy and freedom.

As the crisis unfolds and war efforts escalate, the Ukrainian people will need support from around the world. We urge you to find a way to donate and we have listed several organizations that are supporting humanitarian efforts.

The Molecular Imaging community will continue to hold the Ukrainian people and their loved ones in our thoughts and prayers. Several WMIS members have reached out with statements of support and we urge you to share your thoughts and concerns for those people who are involved.
