Notice of Motion

In Support of Ukraine and its People Against the Unprovoked Attack by The Russian Federation


To be moved by Paul Dennett, City Mayor and seconded by Councillor Tanya Burch.

This City Council:

i.              condemns in the strongest possible terms the unprovoked armed invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation, an illegal act, which constitutes a blatant breach of international law and again sees the spectre of war cast a harrowing shadow over Europe and across all the peaceful, democratic and free nations of the world;

ii.            urges the Russian Federation to immediately and unconditionally cease its military operations in Ukraine and withdraw its troops, whilst also committing to finding an urgent peaceful way forward to resolving the conflict;

iii.           deplores the loss of life, human suffering and destruction caused by the Russian aggression;

iv.           expresses our recognition of the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders;

v.            stresses that the armed attack on Ukraine by the Russian Federation constitutes an attack on the principles and values of democracy, human rights and the rule of law;

vi.           notes that this war makes it impossible for our fellow local authorities in Ukraine to operate and inflicts serious suffering on the Ukrainian people;

vii.          expresses its sympathy, support, and solidarity for Ukraine and its people in their desire to remain a free and democratic country, and notes with concern the countless thousands of Ukrainian citizens who are now fleeing westwards into Poland, Romania, Hungary, and Moldova to escape the escalating conflict.

This City Council recognises:

viii.         that the countries and peoples of eastern Europe have opened their borders and offered sanctuary to the people of Ukraine in their hour of need, as over 1.5 million refugees have already left the Ukraine, with the humanitarian emergency likely to see 7 million people displaced as a result of the Russian Federation’s invasion of Ukraine;

ix.           the £120 million of humanitarian aid made by the UK government to Ukraine so far to save lives, protect vulnerable people inside the country and wider region and to assist in supporting the growing humanitarian crisis;   

x.            that the City of Salford and Greater Manchester has an active Ukrainian community who face the shocking and distressing reality that their family and friends in Ukraine are in the midst of conflict;

xi.           that the City of Salford and Greater Manchester has a long-standing and proud history of providing sanctuary and helping those fleeing persecution, recognising that Greater Manchester has accommodated more asylum seekers and refugees over many years than other parts of the country;

xii.          the unwavering dedication and commitment of the peoples of Salford and Greater Manchester in supporting the humanitarian effort in this international crisis, especially people’s support of the efforts of national charities, Ukrainian Cultural Centre in Manchester and the Polish Integration Support Centre working across the country;   

Therefore, this City Council calls on Her Majesty’s Government to:

xiii.         reassess the current offer of assistance for those forced to leave Ukraine, which currently  ...  view the full agenda text for item 13.
