Members of the Elaine Bacon Literacy Program community deplore the invasion of Ukraine by Russian President Vladimir Putin, an act of aggression that is a violation of international law.

Putin’s actions cannot be defended on any grounds and make evident disregard for the sanctity of the lives of innocent civilians, who are being maimed and murdered on a massive scale.

Ukraine is a sovereign democratic nation. Putin is ignoring protocols called for by civilized societies. We hope that sanctions and the condemnation of the citizens and governments of almost all nations will end the violence. We applaud the many local efforts to stand behind the Ukrainian people and government in this time of great suffering and need. For information about how you can support Ukraine go to
