BaBar Collaboration Statement on the War in Ukraine

We strongly condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We are gravely concerned for the safety of all people who are affected by the ongoing violence and for our Russian colleagues, academics, and journalists who oppose this conflict. We express our solidarity with the Ukrainian people and we encourage governments and international organizations to offer the maximum support to refugees and to provide the resources that are necessary for this humanitarian emergency. We are also concerned about the impact of the war on academic cooperation, which plays a very important role in keeping world peace. Physicists from Canada, France, Germany, Israel, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States have been working together since 1993 in the BaBar Collaboration. We have first hand experience on how an international academic collaboration provides a unique window of communication that generates mutual understanding and a method to overcome disputes. The BaBar Collaboration is committed to providing a collaborative working environment without any division among individual members and will continue to promote peaceful collaboration in science and elsewhere.
