Statement from Warwickshire County Council leaders Cllr Izzi Seccombe OBE - Leader of the Council and Monica Fogarty - Warwickshire County Council's Chief Executive
Warwickshire is a welcoming county, especially to those who find themselves in difficulty through no fault of their own.
We are deeply disturbed at the events in Ukraine and offer our deepest sympathy to the people of Ukraine. As a Council we condemn this aggression and call upon President Putin to call off this assault.
Warwickshire is a diverse county, and we treasure our multicultural communities. We know that our Ukrainian and Russian residents will be worried for family and friends at home, and we want them to know that they have our sympathy, compassion, and support.
Warwickshire is a welcoming county, especially to those who find themselves in difficulty through no fault of their own. We will open our arms to any Ukrainian people who look to begin a new life in this country.
If you, or someone you know needs our help then please do call us on 01926 410410.
