Call to Belarusian Men to Refuse Recruitment to Fight for Russia in Ukraine

(02.03.2022) I am requesting you to support our campaign «No Means No», dedicated to sending Belarusian soldiers to the war in Ukraine on the side of Russia, executed by the regime of Aliaksandr Lukashenka. Today a mass mobilization of Belarusian men in the age from 18 to 58 to the Belarusian army is under way: draft notices are arriving demanding to appear on March 4-9, 2022. According to an unconfirmed report received from a Belarusian military, Aliaksandr Lukashenka is planning to urgently call up for military service about 35-40 thousand Belarusian men.

Conscientious objectors and deserters need our support

No to war in Ukraine!

(01.03.2022) Once again, there is war in Europe. We are appalled. In a war of aggression, Russian troops have invaded Ukraine on the orders of the Russian government under Vladimir Putin. Already  many are dead or have been wounded. There is a threat of further escalation.

We demand from the Russian government to immediately cease all hostilities and withdraw all troops from Ukraine. An escalation leading to the confrontation between Russia and NATO must be avoided at all costs. We welcome starting negotiations before the suffering becomes even greater.

Global Civil Society Urges to Stop Saber-Rattling over Ukraine

Negotiate Sustainable Peace!

(11.01.2022) The escalation toward major war in Ukraine is unnecessary, and both West and East share equal responsibility to avoid it. If global leaders fail to negotiate sustainable peace in good faith instead of blame game and violent settlement of their power dispute on the local battlefield in Ukraine, they will be held accountable via nonviolent means by the people of Earth.
