“Over the past few days, devastating news has shaken the world. Millions of people woke up to explosions in their neighborhoods, their world turned upside down. People living in Ukraine have been fleeing their homes, civilians becoming casualties of an invasion.UN member state Russia’s armed forces, under a special military authorization by the President of the Federation of Russia have invaded and attacked another member state - Ukraine.Two independent and sovereign states are now fighting with arms. While one is defending its freedom and democratic principles, the other is preaching insecurity, fear, and aggression. This is not acceptable by any standards of human civility. This is foremost not acceptable by international law, whereby any form of jurisdiction exercised by the President of Russia is absurd in the context of a geo-political conflict, concerning multilateral relationships.Caught in this violence are innocent humans, who demonstrate their immense courage and determination to seek freedom, and to defend their rights.Visible and verifiable evidence, from multiple sources, have now become public that innocent civilians are losing their lives. This is not only condemnable but justice shall now be brought to those who are suffering at the hands of the aggressor.If it is indeed a philosophical conflict in the mind of aggressors, then they shall be heard in an appropriate global forum but not when they take cities (with millions of innocent human beings) hostage under an armed siege. This is then a barbaric act of state sponsored terrorism and nothing else. Aggressor’s strategy to shape a geo-political future using arms is a misguided notion of humankind.Conflicts are resolved with talks not arms, with values and principles, and not with naked aggression. No man is beyond reproach”"It is therefore our strongest appeal that an immediate ceasefire prevails"
