World Scouting’s Response to Questions Related to Recent Developments in Ukraine
By Rupert Schildböck On 4 March 2014 · Leave a Comment
Following the most recent developments in Ukraine and in response to questions asked by National Scout Organisations (NSOs) and Regional Scout Committee, Scott Teare, Secretary General of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), has published the following statement on the website of WOSM earlier today:
Dear Friends, dear Brother and Sister Scouts:
We have received questions from Regional Committee members and NSO representatives regarding WOSM’s position in the context of the developments in Ukraine.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all who are suffering at this difficult time. This relates to Ukraine but also to all people in other countries and regions around the world who are currently experiencing challenging circumstances that impact their lives.
World Scouting is an educational, diverse and inclusive Movement focused on the personal development of young people. We are not a political or a humanitarian organization.
The World Organization of the Scout Movement, the World Scout Committee and the World Scout Bureau have no mandate to express views on geo-political developments or take positions regarding issues related to local, regional or global conflicts such as the current unfolding developments in Ukraine.
We have been asked to clarify the current organizational structure in Ukraine. The situation is as follows: the National Organization of the Scouts of Ukraine (NOSU) is the Member Organization of WOSM. Some of their individual members – young people and adults – are also members of PLAST, which is another organization serving young people in Ukraine, but PLAST itself is not a member of WOSM. I hope this background information is useful.
In line with our Scout values we express our hope that the situation in Ukraine can be resolved in a peaceful manner through direct discussion and diplomatic negotiations.
Yours in Scouting,
Scott A. Teare,
Secretary General, WOSM
