The Chairman of Rochford District Council says “Our thoughts and solidarity are with the Ukrainian people as we join towns and cities across the UK, Europe and the rest of the world in condemning the unprovoked invasion and devastating attack of Ukraine by the Russian government, led by President Vladimir Putin.

“We have empathy with anyone who finds themselves caught up in this unprovoked and unnecessary conflict.

“We urge the international community to work together to find a diplomatic solution and restore peace".
