The Forum was attended by 177 delegates representing 31 organizations from 13 countries (Belarus, Great Britain, Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy, Poland, the Russian Federation, the Basque country, Turkey, Ukraine, France and Sweden). More than 20 organizations from around the world sent letters of support to the Forum.

The Forum strongly condemned manifestations of fascism in Ukraine, including political terror, massacres, persecution of dissidents, and the prohibition of Communist ideology.

Forum participants supported the residents of Donbas in their quest for peace and their struggle against fascism.

The Forum called on the EU governments, the United States, the deputies of the European Parliament, and representatives of the countries at the UN to take all possible measures, including economic and political sanctions, against the State of Ukraine and the Ukrainian Government to implement all the provisions of international agreements, including Minsk, aimed at ending the war and restoring peaceful life in the Donbass.

The Forum adopted a decision to establish an International Committee of Solidarity with the Donbass: ‘Antifascism, Internationalism, Solidarity’. Its main goal is united action by political parties, public organizations and movements, and independent activists to support the Donbass, preserve peace, oppose fascism and build a just society.
