That this General meeting of Members of the Victorian Branch of the Communications Workers Union resolves to condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the actions of Vladimir Putin and his murderous invasion of Ukraine.
We stand united with all citizens of a free and democratic Ukraine, and all citizens of the world who believe that every, woman., man and child have a fundamental right to live in peace and free from tyranny.
We also acknowledge that the actions of Vladimir Putin are not done in the name of the people of both Russia and Belarus and we stand united with all the citizens of both countries who are rightfully horrified that, woman, men and children are been slaughtered in their name.
