President of the FCI on Ukraine

Featured Written by Dr T Jakkel

As the President of the FCI, I express my deepest sorrow on the recent war situation in Ukraine. My hearts and prayers go out to all those affected by the situation in any form. Like everyone else, I truly hope these saddening times will come to an end soon.

I heartily thank each breeder, kennel club, authority, civil organisation throughout Europe who immediately started to organise help for those in need, escaping their homes.

I thank all those who try their best to help those stuck in their homes, unable to move with their dogs.

The great International support shows the real spirit of the FCI community, and we would like to encourage everybody to continue this work being the most important activity related to the situation these days.

My personal RESPECT goes to everybody involved in this rescue movement that makes us proud and proves that we belong together!

The FCI General Committee has decided in consultation with the FCI Agility Commission to cancel the next Agility FCI World Championship, scheduled to take place in Moscow this September because the utmost priority of the FCI is the safety and wellbeing of our competitors and officials.

I strongly believe that PERSONAL CHARACTER GOES IN FRONT OF NATIONALITY! At this moment, judging our own people (sharing the same passion and profession) based on what was decided by others only could create general hatred and emotions that never lead us to any acceptable solutions.

I ask everyone to remain sensible during such dark times. No matter how hard it is due to your fears, sorrow, loss, or grief.

We follow the situation carefully and will inform our community about any possibility of further help needed. I contacted some of our strategical partners to provide help for those in heavy need, even though that can be life-threatening.

In order to decide the possible next steps for the support of our members, the FCI General Committee holds its urgent extraordinary meeting.

My prayers go to everyone suffering in these tragic days.

Dr T Jakkel

President of the FCI
