Last Wednesday, as Russia prepared to attack Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy made an emotional address to his nation. The war is a big disaster, and this disaster has a high price. With every meaning of this word. People lose money, reputation, quality of life, they lose freedom. But the main thing is that people lose their loved ones, they lose themselves. But our main goal is peace in Ukraine and the safety of our people, Ukrainians. For that, we are ready to have talks with anybody, including you, in any format, on any platform. The war will deprive [security] guarantees from everybody – nobody will have guarantees of security any more. Who will suffer the most from it? The people. Who doesn’t want it the most? The people! Who can stop it? The people. But are there those people among you?
This message has implications for European and international Soical Work. Please add your concerns and comments to this blog.
NBRRC will call a crisis meeting to consider our response. Please check the website for details.
