The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation condemns in the strongest possible way, Russia’s illegal and illegitimate invasion of Ukraine. We stand with the brave people of Ukraine, and with the brave dissidents in Russia advocating for peace. We also urge the Russian people, the American people, and the people of all other nations to do their utmost to condemn this conflict and to prevent its escalation, which could include the use of nuclear weapons. The fate of the world depends upon it.
As the Ukraine War continues, its brutality has horrified the world and its dangers have forced a great and unpredictable shift in history. There is reason to worry, reason to mourn, but also reason to hope. We are inspired and encouraged by the deep wisdom of moral and spiritual figures such as Pope Francis, the Dalai Lama, and Antonio Guterres who have been calling for a world free of nuclear weapons for a long time now. Most recently, they have all been pleading with the parties to the conflict since the onset of the Ukraine War to search for peaceful solutions that stop the killing and start the healing. We must do everything we can to keep the war in Ukraine from escalating into a nuclear war – a war that threatens all life on the planet. We must wake up before it is too late.
