HWPL appeals for peace in Ukraine

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

Globally, many societies have reacted to Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine by denouncing the decision by Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, to attack and occupy the Ukraine territory.

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 the global security and stability.

On the 28th, 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 a global cooperation for peace.

Titled “Statement by Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) Regarding Russia and Ukraine”, it demands that Russia withdraw all military to its own territory. It also demands the international community protect and accommodate refugees and 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 been seeking to construct a global network for peace by building solidarity among leaders and representatives around the world in various sectors including politics, religion, youth, women, and media. In 2018, HWPL sent out “peace letters” written by 580,000 citizens worldwide urging the heads of states of 192 countries to demand their participation in cooperation for peace.

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