Broxtowe Borough Council condemns the actions of Vladimir Putin and the Russian Government

Broxtowe Borough Council condemns the actions of
Vladimir Putin and the Russian Government in its decision to
invade Ukraine.

We express our horror at the disregard for
human life, national sovereignty and international rule of
law. 

This Council stands with the people of Ukraine and their
friends and relatives living in the Borough and beyond. This
is an unprovoked attack on a sovereign nation. The people
that will suffer the most will be civilians on both sides. 

We express our unity and support for President Zelensky,
the democratically elected Government and the people of
Ukraine and call on the UK Government and its NATO allies
to offer the maximum humanitarian aid and support for the
Ukrainian Government and people.

Broxtowe Borough Council are ready to step up to help
refugees who have fled their homes.

Above is a speech I read out as the #MayorOfBroxtowe at full Council on Wednesday, thank you to Councillor Steve Carr who prepared the speech, this was supported by others who spoke in the meeting as well.

You can watch the meeting below. For some reason the first 12 minutes has no sound.
