An International NGO Sends Anti-war Statement to 192 Countries to Restore Peace in Ukraine

Press Release: March 07, 2022

Many parts of the global society are reacting to Russia's military invasion of Ukraine by denouncing Russian President Putin's decision of devastating attack and occupation of the Ukraine territory.

In his presidency, Putin used military power to invade and control foreign territory including South Ossetia, Crimea of Ukraine, and now parts of the north, east, and south of Ukraine, which all challenged global security and stability.

On February 28th 2022, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), a South Korea-based international NGO affiliated with the UN ECOSOC and Seoul Metropolitan Government, made a statement to advocate global cooperation for peace.

Titled “Statement by Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) Regarding Russia and Ukraine”, the statement demands that Russia withdraw all military to its own territory, that the international community protect and accommodate refugees, and that global youth unite for an anti-war movement and peace.

“Military aggression against a sovereign state cannot be a solution to any problem, and the perils of such war and violent conflict hit innocent citizens the hardest, including women, the youth, and children. …Russia must withdraw its forces back to its country… (and we) request all nations to demonstrate their love for humanity by offering help to refugees.”

HWPL has sought to construct a global network for peace by building solidarity among leaders and representatives from the field of politics, religion, youth, women and media in the world. Written by 580,000 citizens worldwide, HWPL sent out "peace letters" urging the heads of states of 192 countries to demand their participation in cooperation for peace in 2018.

On February 26th 2022, the White House announced through a statement that the European Commission, France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States will cooperate to execute an economic sanction to exclude Russia from the international financial system by removing selected Russian banks from the SWIFT. 

Ukrainian forces are currently resisting against the Russian military with effective defence, and anti-war protests and voices in support of Ukraine through social media become more widespread throughout the world.
