H.E. Sir Patrick Bijou, implored upon world leaders yesterday calling for peace in Eastern Europe. In his speech, Sir Patrick spoke about the need for all countries in the region to work together to find a solution to the ongoing conflict. He also urged all sides to respect the human rights of those affected by the fighting. Sir Patrick’s speech comes at a time when tensions are high in Eastern Europe, and many are concerned that the conflict could escalate into a full-blown war. With such a respected figure calling for peace, perhaps there is hope that cooler heads will prevail and a peaceful solution can be found.
War in Ukraine is a senseless Waste of Life
Since the outbreak of war many thousands have been killed and wounded. This senseless loss of life must stop. The international community must come together to find a peaceful resolution to this conflict.
Sir Patrick Bijou is the Peace Ambassador to Europe for World Peace Tracts. He has witnessed the devastating impact of this war on the Ukrainian and Russian people. In a recent speech, he urged the international community to take action to bring about a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
Over 2 million people have been displaced, many of them forced to flee their homes in the middle of winter.
Sir Patrick called on all sides to respect the ceasefire agreement that was reached in Minsk in 2015 and to engage in negotiations to find a political solution to the conflict. He warned that continued fighting will only lead to more death and destruction and will not solve any of the underlying issues that have led to this conflict.
The international community must come together to support peace in Eastern Europe. We must work together to find a lasting solution that will bring an end to this senseless loss of life.
Russia Ukraine War is a risk to World Peace
The Russia-Ukraine war is a risk to world peace. It has the potential to escalate into a regional conflict with global implications. The fighting in eastern Ukraine has already claimed over 10,000 lives and displaced more than 1.6 million people. There is a real danger that the conflict could spread beyond Ukraine’s borders and drag in other countries.
The international community must do everything it can to stop pouring gas into the war in Ukraine and help find a peaceful resolution to the conflict. We must also stand up to world war mongers and make it clear that we will not tolerate attempts to draw the world into a new war.
The UK is playing a leading role in supporting peace in Ukraine. Since July, the UK has led a major infantry training scheme for soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. changing the immigration system to support British nationals and their families who usually live in Ukraine, and Ukrainians in the UK and their families. Providing non-lethal assistance to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, including body armour and radar equipment. We are also working with our European partners to provide economic support to Ukraine and help it reform its economy and governance.
We are also using our diplomatic clout to push for a peaceful resolution to the conflict. We are working closely with our partners in the Normandy format (France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine) to find a way forward. And we are supporting efforts by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to monitor the situation on the ground and promote compliance with the Minsk Agreements – the only viable way to achieve peace in eastern Ukraine.
It is time Russia and Ukraine end the war
The conflict in Eastern Ukraine has now entered its sixth month, with no end in sight. Every day, innocent civilians are being killed or wounded; homes and livelihoods destroyed. This is a human tragedy of enormous proportions.
It is time for Russia and Ukraine to put an end to this senseless war. The international community must also do everything in its power to bring about a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
We must not give up hope that a lasting peace can be achieved. Only by working together can we end this tragic war and build a better future for all the people of Eastern Europe. To contact H. E. Sir Patrick Bijou, or learn more, visit his website at www.sirpatrickbijou.org
