Ukraine war: Petition supporting refuseniks delivered to the EU

On 15 May 2023, Payday and War Resisters International delivered a copy of a petition, signed by 50,000 people, to the EU delegation in London in support of the #ObjectWarCampaign. Initiated by four international organisations, it demands protection and asylum for the hundreds of thousands refuseniks from Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. The original petition was handed to the EU offices in Berlin. “Sending arms to Ukraine is not the solution. Our hope lies with these men and women who refuse to kill and maim.”
