Stop the Russo-Ukraine WarStop the Russo-Ukraine war

Statement by the Ukraine Solidarity Campaign (UK)

Pro-Russian para-militaries are surrounded in the cities of Luhansk and Donetsk but peace in Ukraine is far from certain, the remaining inhabitants are in a perilous position.  Since April more than 1,543 military and civilians have been killed, some 4,396 confirmed wounded, across Ukraine there are up to 400,000 internally displaced persons. 

The Ukraine Solidarity Campaign (USC) declares its solidarity with the Ukrainian labour movement that stands for unity and all efforts to reinstate peace.   USC supports the anti-war movement in Russia and demands the release of all political prisoners and an end to the repression in Russia.  

To stop the war USC campaigns for the following as a path for independence, peace and democracy:  

USC calls for full solidarity with the Ukrainian labour movement, and not those who would seek to divide workers to serve the vested interests of rival powers. 

We oppose the attempt of Russian imperialism to dominate Ukraine, just as we oppose the efforts of Western and American imperialism to do the same thing.
