The European Olympic Committees (EOC), whose Executive Committee (ExCo) met virtually today in an extraordinary session, reiterates its endorsement of the communique put forth by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board condemning the breach of the Olympic Truce. The EOC strongly supports President Bach’s call for peace and expresses its full support to the Olympic Community in Ukraine.

As already shown by the Baltic National Olympic Committees (NOCs), the EOC calls all its Members to stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian Olympic Community.

Many NOCs from the neighbouring countries have already expressed their full assistance and friendship, and the EOC would like to warmly thank them for this valuable sign of solidarity and kindness.

In partnership with the IOC, the EOC will continue to monitor this deeply concerning situation and is ready to cooperate and provide humanitarian assistance where possible.
