ORU FOGAR denounces the bombardment of the headquarters of a regional council in Ukraine

During the bombardment of the Kharkiv Regional Council on the first of March, ORU Fogar President Rashid el Abdi recorded a message condemning the bombing, while expressing his solidarity with the Donbass region (and the city of Mariupol) in which, he recalled, ORU Fogar had kept in touch and worked. 
In the message, and after condemning the use of violence as a method of conflict resolution, ORU Fogar defended governance based on respect for diversity, decentralization and recognition of territories. These principles, he said, have been proven to promote the development of peoples. He also recalled the experiences of territorial integration, which sometimes go beyond borders and "old hatreds".
