Video: Putin, Biden and Zelenskyy, Take Peace Talks Seriously!

By Yurii Sheliazhenko, World BEYOND War, March 8, 2022

Speaking in Kyiv under Russian bombardment, I explain how a perspective of nonviolent global governance in a future world without armies and borders will help to deescalate Russia-Ukraine and East-West conflict threatening nuclear apocalypse. Global civil society should call to good-faith negotiations on sustainable peace between: President Biden advocating leadership of the United States in the international order established by military alliance of Western democracies, supporting Ukraine and demanding to make Russia pay for attacks on Ukraine and her allegiance to the West; President Zelenskyy advocating Euro-Atlantic choice of Ukraine, her sovereignty over Donbass and Crimea, cessation of ties with Russia and her following punishment for imperialism and war crimes; and President Putin advocating multipolarity and Russian security concerns in post-Soviet region, demanding demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, including non-alignment with military alliances, absence of nuclear weapons, recognition of Russian sovereignty over Crimea and independence of Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, as well as non-discrimination of Russian people and culture in Ukraine and punishment of anti-Russian far-righters. Deep contradictions in these positions should be resolved in principled negotiations on the basis of interests, values, and needs of the people of Earth. To assist the peace process, I propose to create an independent public commission of experts for peaceful resolution of the crisis in and around Ukraine.
