Today the USIP Executive Committee “In accordance to the SIP STATUS Article 7” has decided that due to the situation and invasion in the Ukraine by Russian Forces, the membership of Russia and Belarus will be postponed until the USIP Congress decides regarding their USIP memberships.

The Executive Committee has also discussed the position of 2 members of the USIP Executive and Technical Committee. These members from Russia and Belarus will be out of duty until the USIP Congress has made a decision about their position.

The USIP, as all international organizations, supports peace over the world. Our thoughts are with our police friends, colleagues, and people of Ukraine. May peace and safety end this tragedy soon.
