The NBU continues to take steps to combat russia’s military aggression against Ukraine, a massive and indiscriminate war effort that has been abetted by belarus.
To this end, NBU employees that graduated the JVI have sent a letter to the institute’s director, Hervé Joly, requesting that all available online and offline training be made inaccessible for individuals and government organizations based in russia and belarus.
“The Joint Vienna Institute provides all professionals with valuable expertise and knowledge. As members of the alumni community, we highly appreciate the opportunities that this organization creates. We must ensure that knowledge and skills provided to the attendees will not support the aggressor states’ efforts to mitigate the international sanctions’ impact, and that these educational activities will not aid the economy that is feeding the war.
We hope that our peers and partners will support Ukraine in its fight to preserve its independence and territorial integrity by putting additional pressure on the aggressor states with all available means,” the alumni said in the statement.
The NBU will persevere in doing everything in its power to block the financing of the aggressor countries’ armed assault on Ukraine. The central bank is calling on all stakeholders to join the push to defend the principles of freedom, democracy, and security.
