Declaration on the Ucraine war

The Board of Directors and the Management of the German Interior Business Association (IBA) strongly condemn the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine.

This blatant breach of international law, the disregard for the right of peoples to self-determination and the outrageous act of aggression against the civilian population require an unequivocal response in the form of comprehensive sanctions against those responsible for this aggression. IBA strongly supports the sanctions measures against Russia imposed by the German government, the European Union and the Western allies. We are convinced that sustainable economic success can only be achieved on the basis of peace, freedom and democracy, and we are willing to make our contribution to this end.

The great wave of helpfulness in business and civil society for the people in Ukraine is overwhelming. To ensure that the aid is tailored to the concrete needs on the ground, the BDI, BDA, DIHK and ZDH have launched the #WirtschaftHilft initiative. There, companies can find all important information on concrete help. IBA also supports this initiative.
