European Federation of Internal Medicine (EFIM) Statement against the war in Ukraine

EFIM condemns the attack on Ukraine.

We deplore the human casualties and ask to cease immediately the hostilities.

As physicians, we will never consider war as an option. War cannot be the response to any kind of action, as it generates only other suffering.

We would like to express our closeness to the Ukrainian colleagues who are experiencing the frustration and fear for the difficulties in taking care of their patients.
