Due to the Russian attack on its neighbour Ukraine, universities as well as scientific institutions have suspended their cooperation with partners and individuals from both Russia and Belarus. The DOG is of the same opinion and has decided to cease cooperation with the Russian and Belarussian societies of ophthalmology.

The DOG deeply regrets these measures in view of our long-standing deep and friendly relations with the ophthalmological societies of Russia and Belarus and also with numerous ophthalmologists who regularly attend our congress. With very many of them we feel a bond of friendship that goes back a long way.

In our view, individuals shall not be hold responsible for devastating decisions made by a government they do not support. This is why DOG wants to maintain contacts and communications on a personal level and Russian and Belarusian ophthalmologists therefore are as welcome to participate in our congress as are ophthalmologists from Ukraine. Scientific submissions (papers or posters) will be accepted regardless of nationality and participation in the DOG congress shall be possible. However this year, the funding for best abstracts for participants of the middle and eastern European countries will be granted to ophthalmologists from Ukraine in the first place.
