The World Customs Organization’s (WCO) Secretariat would like to express its deep sadness and grave concern with regard to the continued suffering, devastation and loss of life going on in Ukraine. We have been monitoring the crisis very closely in coordination with the WCO Council Chair, including the ongoing dialogue and deliberations taking place at the heart of the United Nations (UN). In doing so, we pay special attention to the implications the crisis is having on Customs as border operations have been severely impacted. We pay tribute every day to all Customs officers who have been working tirelessly and bravely during the crisis. As an Organization built on international cooperation, unity and diplomacy, we sincerely hope that a peaceful resolution will be found as soon as possible.
