On this page you can read about the measurements taken by Svenska Kennelklubben, SKK, regarding the war in Ukraine.
Military actions have never and will never bring anything good. SKK is strongly against the unacceptable actions that Ukraine is forced to endure and also Belarus engagement and support for Russia’s actions.
We feel deep sympathy to all that have been affected by the war in Ukraine. The suffering that our dog friends, dogs and all people in Ukraine is forced to endure for their country’s freedom and democracy is totally unacceptable.
We also express our sympathy to all our Russian and Belarus dog friends who has a political leadership which puts their country and people in a degrading and destructive situation.
