No Belarusian Troops for the War – Call for Action Day February 20
(01.02.2023) On the 20th of February 2023, we - Nash Dom, Ukrainian Pacifist Movement, Connection e.V., Federation for Social Defence, European Bureau for Conscientious Objection, International Fellowship of Reconciliation, Agir pour la paix and War Resisters’ International – call for demonstrations outside Belarusian embassies across Europe. These protests will draw attention to the danger of Belarus joining Russia by sending military personnel to attack Ukraine.
Deserters and objectors from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine need our support
(16.08.2022) We have updated and redesigned our folder on the campaign for deserters and conscientious objectors from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine for further distribution. In it, we present the work for deserters and conscientious objectors from these countries as of September 2022. In addition, we provide background information on conscientious objection and desertion, as well as conscientious objection and asylum.

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.
