IFToMM as a worldwide federation is committed since its begining to building bridges in friendship over the world, for the good of science and technology, and of humankind. We at IFToMM mourn over the current unnecessary suffering and bloodshed of innocent people in Ukraine on both sides, and pray for the re-blossoming of peace, which is so necessary.

We ask the politically responsible persons to stop this war, so that people can work again together instead of fighting each other. History shows that war can be no good, under any circumstances. Peace is the source of solutions and progress.
