This is a proposal for Debian to issue a statement on an
issue of the day as given as an example, the recent invasion
of Ukraine.

==== Text of GR ====

The Debian project issues the following statement:

The Debian project strongly condemns the invasion of Ukraine by
Russia. The Debian projects affirms that Ukrain is a souvereign
nation which includes the Donbas regions of Luhansk, as well as
Crimea, which has already been illegaly annexed by Russia.

If you remember the GR about RMS [1], the outcome was "Debian will not issue a public statement on this issue". Even if you find seconds to propose this GR (which hopefully wont happen), it's very likely that a majority of DDs will not want to make such a statement and vote against your above text.
