Words of welcome on the occasion of the International Day of Conscientious Objection

International Centre for civil initiatives “Our House” (Belarus)

(15.05.2024) Today, 15th of May, we commemorate International Conscientious Objector Day. Incredibly, there is a war going on in our region today. And I still cannot comprehend and accept it. A decade ago, if someone had asked me which scenario was more realistic: aliens attacking our planet or Russia invading Ukraine, I would have said that there was no need to think about it; of course, aliens are the more realistic scenario.

Grußwort zum Internationalen Tag der Kriegsdienstverweigerung

Ukrainische Pazifistische Bewegung

(15.05.2024) Liebe Freunde, ich grüße euch aus Kiew und wünsche euch viel Erfolg bei euren heutigen Aktionen! Die Ukraine leidet unter der brutalen, verbrecherischen Invasion von Putins Armee und es braucht weltweite Solidarität für den gewaltfreien Widerstand gegen die russische Aggression, um den Krieg mit friedlichen Mitteln zu beenden [...]. Ich habe keine guten Nachrichten aus der Ukraine für Sie. Die Zahl der ukrainischen Kinder, die durch den Krieg des Kremls getötet wurden, hat ein halbes Tausend überschritten.

Ukrainian Pacifist Movement

(15.05.2024) Dear friends, greetings from Kyiv and my best wishes for success in your peace initiatives. Ukraine suffers from brutal criminal invasion of Putin’s army, and global solidarity for nonviolent resistance to Russian aggression is needed to end the war by peaceful means [...]. I have no good news from Ukraine for you. The number of Ukrainian kids killed by the Kremlin’s war exceeded half a thousand.
