NEITHER WASHINGTON NOR MOSCOW - NO TO THE WAR MONGERING OF THE US, NATO AND RUSSIA OVER UKRAINE

IAWM STATEMENT ON UKRAINE – 17 MARCH 2014

· NEITHER WASHINGTON NOR MOSCOW - NO TO THE WAR MONGERING OF THE US, NATO AND RUSSIA OVER UKRAINE

· NO TO THE INCLUSION OF FASCIST ELEMENTS IN UKRAINE’S GOVERNMENT

· FOR PEACE AND AGAINST WAR - DE-ESCALATE THE MILITARY RHETORIC AND FACILIATE A PEACE PROCESS AMONG ALL THE UKRANIAN PEOPLE

The Irish Anti-war Movement (IAWM) condemns the war mongering and saber rattling of the US and other western powers and Russia over Ukraine. We call for a peaceful resolution of the crisis and for the needs of all the ethnic peoples of Ukraine to be respected in order to avert a return to the dangerous days of the Cold War or indeed a full-scale war.

It is unbelievable that on the 11th anniversary of the disastrous US-led invasion and occupation of Iraq western leaders are seriously stoking up racial tensions and considering military options in Ukraine.

The IAWM condemns the actions taken by Russia in mobilizing its military forces, occupying the Crimea and promoting a provocative referendum on its secession. Russia and western powers have a long imperial history in the Ukraine that has led to millions of deaths in the past. We acknowledge the rights of the Russian-speaking minority within Ukraine to be respected but note that Vladimir Putin and the Russian military are exploiting their fears and stoking tensions for their own strategic militaristic reasons. We stand with the tens of thousands of Russian people who marched in Moscow two days ago against Russian aggression and in support of a peaceful solution.
