Ukrainian Pacifist’s Message to the World: U.S., NATO & Russia Share Responsibility to Avoid War

By Democracy Now, February 16, 2022

NATO officials have joined the U.S. and other Western nations in saying they have yet to see evidence that Russia is pulling back some troops near the shared border with Ukraine, as Russia claimed earlier this week. We speak with Yurii Sheliazhenko, executive secretary of the Ukrainian Pacifist Movement, who says, “Both great powers of the West and the East share equal responsibility to avoid escalation of war in Ukraine and beyond Ukraine.”

Yurii Sheliazhenko is executive secretary of the Ukrainian Pacifist Movement, board member of the European Bureau for Conscientious Objection, member of the board of directors at World BEYOND War, and a research associate at KROK University in Kyiv, Ukraine.
