FDRA joins the U.S. government and international community in strongly condemning the actions of Russia in Ukraine. Russia’s unjustified and vicious invasion of Ukraine goes against our values and belief in human rights and self-determination. We cannot be silent as brave independent people put their lives on the line against a brutal authoritarian dictator to maintain their free and democratic Ukraine. The targeting of families attempting to flee war torn cities further compels the footwear industry to speak out. We call on the Administration to continue to engage with our allies on an effective strategy for responding to the crisis in Ukraine.
