Why this petition matters

Started by Joanna Pavitt

This is a crucial pivotal moment now in the war waged by Russia on Ukraine. Nato and EU countries have provided Ukraine with defensive weaponry so far, which they have used well & valiantly against the forces sent there by Russia. However they urgently need more offensive weaponry now, in order to try to push the Russians back as far as possible & therefore give Ukraine more bargaining & negotiating power when the time comes hopefully to be able to secure the end of this appalling war waged upon them without any cause or justification. The Ukrainian people have suffered enough & we must act to help end it as quickly as possible. We cannot stand by & watch it all taking place without doing all we can to help the Ukrainian nation to survive & overcome this & thrive once again afterwards. We must bring the Russians to account for their war crimes too. There is clear evidence that, in addition to atrocities and murder of innocent citizens, they have used internationally banned weapons. The west unfortunately has been weak & impotent for too long where Putin & Russia is concerned & this latest war is yet another tragic consequence of their lack of backbone & resolve. If our grandparents generation had not taken a stand when Hitler invaded Poland in 1939, Europe would look very different today. Democracy & our freedoms & ability to voice our opinions need to be protected and fiercely defended always, as it can so easily be lost. All those millions of people who suffered & died during the second world war deserve it. They made sacrifices so that we could live free & comfortable lives since. If we don't provide Ukraine with all the military assistance & support possible now before Russia is able to regroup & resupply & renew their aggression we will be missing a vital opportunity to influence the outcome of this war & Russia's plans. Failure to do so would also give Russia a clear light to feel free to continue with their aggressive aims towards surrounding countries that are less well equipped than Ukraine to resist them, in the absence of any real challenges from Nato or the EU, other than the economic sanctions put in place against them.  So please lobby your local MPs & national governments, Parliament & the EU & Nato member countries to push momentum to help achieve this petition. If we do not, then all of Europe & western democratic countries are at risk.
