epi expresses solidarity with Ukraine

As a pan-European organisation with more than 13,000 members exercising their profession in 38 countries, epi’s thoughts are with all those dramatically impacted by the ongoing use of force against Ukraine.

We, epi, stand in solidarity with all those, particularly civilians, suffering from the outbreak of violence in Ukraine and with all refugees seeking safety in other countries. We support the resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on 2nd March, calling for immediate cessation of the use of force against Ukraine and renunciation of any unlawful threat or use of force against any State.

As user representatives, we support the announcement of the European Patent Office "Standing Together for Peace in Europe" and its immediate reaction to the situation in Ukraine.
