The world is watching the suffering of people in Ukraine, and the humanitarian and refugee crises with dismay. At the same time, we must not forget those striving for peace in the country and Russia as well, in these days of military aggression against a sovereign neighbor state.
Russian citizens risk their freedom and being prosecuted by the Russian police forces in executing their right for peace and withdrawal of all foreign troops from Ukraine soil. They also send a strong signal to the world: Not all of Russia is standing behind Putin! They express with great courage what many more people in Russia are thinking: Not in my name!
We remain committed to supporting them, and everyone working towards peace in the region.
Heinz Bierbaum- President of the Party of European Left
