Important note about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, February 24, 2022:
Although we are a strictly apolitical initiative, we must categorically condemn the evils and injustices of war, because ordinary people suffer the most in every war. We condemn gross violations of international law and the principles of the UN Charter. There is no rational justification for this war. Today, we are witnessing what a fragile commodity peace and friendship are. We believe that there are still people in Russia who want true peace without lies and political propaganda.We wish all these Russians good luck and keep their fingers crossed!
