Why is this important? For more than half a year, the Russian Federation has been waging a war of aggression in Ukraine, with devastating consequences. There seems to be no end in sight. Yet we know that men and women on all sides are evading the crimes of war. Tens of thousands are fleeing the Russian Federation and Belarus to avoid being recruited for the war. Thousands are leaving Ukraine because they see their human right to conscientious objection in danger. They are all our hope for overcoming violence.

This petition is run by Connection e.V., International Fellowship of Reconciliation, European Bureau for Conscientious Objection and War Resisters’ International

Every recruit could be a conscientious objector - Every soldier could be a deserter

Russia, Belarus and Ukraine

(21.09.2022) For more than half a year war is waged in Ukraine. With this campaign we would like to draw attention to all those who have decided, sometimes at great risk to themselves, not to participate in this war - on whatever side.

More than a European network

For deserters and conscientious objectors from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine

(20.09.2022) Since the beginning of the war we have looked for possibilities to build a European network to support conscientious objectors and deserters from the countries involved in the war.
