SINGAPORE — Singapore on Thursday (24 February) strongly condemned the “unprovoked invasion” of Ukraine, as Russia on the same day began multiple attacks in various parts of its neighbouring state.
“Singapore strongly condemns any unprovoked invasion of a sovereign country under any pretext,” a spokesperson from the city-state’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
The spokesperson said that Singapore is “gravely concerned” by Russia’s “special military operation” in the Donbas region, and reports of land and air attacks on multiple targets in Ukraine.
“We reiterate that the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine must be respected.”
Singapore hopes military actions will cease immediately, and urges a peaceful settlement of the dispute, in accordance with the United Nations Charter and international law.
