The crisis in and around Ukraine has entered a new phase with the military operation initiated by the Russian Federation on the morning of the 24th of February.
The Cyprus Peace Council (CPC) condemns the arrival of British Typhoon fighter jets at Akrotiri. The British military bases in Akrotiri are being prepared to be used once again as a launching pad. The arrival of the British fighter jets is part of the escalation of tension promoted by the USA, Britain and NATO in Eastern Europe centred on the Ukrainian-Russian border. The NATO forces are preparing for war without taking into account the security and future of the peoples.
The evolution of the situation in Europe brings special relevance and urgency to what the
CPPC expressed as pressing, in mid-December: the “urgent adoption of measures
capable of immediately reducing the military escalation and the danger of confrontation
and promote the establishment of measures of mutual trust that, in the long term, will
make possible détente and the safeguarding of peace.”
Since then, the tension has not ceased to escalate. The US and NATO have further
El Consejo Mundial de la Paz condena la creciente agresividad imperialista y la escalada de las tensiones alrededor de Ucrania , su despliegue masivo de tropas desde el Mar Báltico a Bulgaria, y la creación de un cinturón que apunta al cerco de la Federación Rusa.
The Greek Committee for International Detente and Peace (EEDYE) expresses its deep concern about the recent developments in Ukraine. The confrontation between the US - NATO - EU and Russia is escalating dangerously, on the ground of all the events that took place in the region of Ukraine from 2014 until today.
The World Peace Council (WPC) expresses its deepest concerns about the escalating tensions in Eastern Europe and particularly around the Ukraine, caused primarily by the growing aggressive expansion of NATO towards Eastern Europe, its massive deployment of troops from the Baltic Sea to Bulgaria, and creating a belt aiming at the encirclement of the Russian Federation.
We must act now to stop the war with Russia over Ukraine, a war that would risk becoming a dangerous conflict between nuclear states. As people residing in the United States, we have a special responsibility to call upon the U.S. government to:
— Stop the war with Russia
— Stop the NATO expansion
— Stop sending weapons to Ukraine and the European Union
— Obey international laws and the UN Charter
— Resolve the current conflict within the United Nations Security Council
— De-escalate the threat of a nuclear war
The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC), continuing its previous actions of denunciation and expression of solidarity, condemns the continued disregard of international law, including several United Nations resolutions, by Israel, which maintains
its colonialist and xenophobic policy, illegally occupying Palestinian territories, attacking and oppressing the Palestinian people, with the support of Western powers, namely the United States of America and the European Union.
The continuous and prolonged interferences and wars of aggression conducted by the USA, NATO and their allies, in the Middle East, in Africa, in Central Asia and in Europe, led to an unprecedented humanitarian crisis with expression in the tens of millions of displaced people, refugees and migrants from countries affected by conflict or bordering them, and sought refuge in countries of the European Union (EU).
It is with concern that the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation follows the evolution of the escalation of tension between NATO and Russia and, in this context, the developments of the situation in Ukraine, which pose serious and huge risks to peace. In view of the seriousness of the situation, the CPPC considers that it is urgent to adopt measures capable of immediately reducing the military escalation and the danger of confrontation and promoting the establishment of measures of mutual trust that, in the long term, will enable détente and safeguard peace.
