Ukraine Statement

We call for the UK government to immediately de-escalate their intervention involving the Ukraine-Russian territorial dispute. 

Ukraine is not suffering any humanitarian crisis and is not victim to an invasion. We view the build-up of NATO troops and munitions as a deliberate provocation against Russia.

There has been no intelligence to support that Russia have made any threat towards the Ukraine, its borders or it’s people, despite the numerous reports from criminal Western governments and the complicit media. 

A war within the Ukraine would only serve to support corporate and globalist interests, the price of which would be paid for with the blood of young soldiers and ordinary people. 

We call for an immediate halt to any provocation that the UK and NATO are participating in and to withdraw troops, munitions and heavy artillery from the Ukraine. 

Russia has not broken articles of the Minsk Protocol and it is only western interests that are fuelling the potential for an outbreak of war.

Minsk Protocol

The text of the protocol consists of twelve points:

  1. To ensure an immediate bilateral ceasefire.
