The Conference of International Book Fair Directors strongly condemns the Russian invasion of Ukraine. As the creator of platforms where publishers, writers, agents, translators and illustrators can interact and engage openly and where free expression and critical voices are cherished, we categorically deplore the Russian regime’s use of force. We cannot remain either silent or indifferent to Russia’s transformation of Ukraine into a killing field. We, therefore, resolve to suspend contact with any Russian state institutions and agencies and invite publishers and authors from Ukraine to exhibit in our fairs at no cost.
