Dear leaders of European states and major international organizations, including the United Nations and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe!
We, the peoples of Europe, on the basis of our civil and political rights guaranteed by international law and national legislation, call on you to stop supporting Ukraine's incitement to discord and hatred with senseless bloodshed in the center of our continent, as well as its possible escalation into a world war.
Unfortunately, today, contrary to the fundamental principles set out in Article 2 of the UN Charter, in particular the principles of sovereign equality and peaceful settlement of international disputes, weapons are being delivered from our countries to Ukraine, from which civilians in Donbass, including children, are massively killed and injured, this process multiplying suffering and human casualties in the heart of Europe. which does not allow us to remain indifferent observers. We share the pain of the people of Donbass, deeply sympathize with their grief and categorically condemn the supply of weapons and ammunition, which are ultimately directed against the civilian population. Moreover, we believe that this practice multiplies the probability of the spread of hostilities to the entire continent and even the risk of the outbreak of a third world war.
The obvious consequences of these short-sighted militaristic policies are also a violation of the balance in the field of European security, the cultivation of hatred and enmity between peoples, the breakdown of mutually beneficial cultural and economic ties, all of which have a direct correlation with the sharp decline in the standard of living in our countries today, in contradiction with Article 11 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and tomorrow may lead to disasters and consequences for an already fragile world.
We urge you to remember the most terrible lessons of human history, the Second World War, and not to repeat these mistakes in modern times. In this regard, we urge the governments of European states and the leaders of major international organizations, including the United Nations and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, to help stop the targeted extermination of civilians in the Donbass, including the killing of children, destruction of homes, schools and hospitals. We demand an end to the financing of state terrorism and genocide against the people of Donbass, as well as the continued violations of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and other acts of international humanitarian law since 2014.
