Image related to Miller Canfield's Statement in Support of the People of Ukraine

Miller Canfield stands in solidarity with the brave people of Ukraine and the Ukrainian legal community against Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified invasion.

We and the world have watched in horror as Russia's forces intentionally destroy hospitals, schools, and apartments buildings and kill innocent men, women and children trying to flee the carnage unleashed by the Russian aggression. We are also deeply troubled by the Kremlin’s decision to shut down all of Russia's remaining independent broadcasters to hide the truth about its atrocities, staggering casualties and devastation brought upon peaceful Ukraine. The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) has announced an investigation into Putin over possible war crimes in Ukraine, which we fully support. Russia's barbaric actions must be brought to justice.
