Two World Wars are enough!
In the past Germany has allowed itself to be drawn into the First World War and in the Second World War it has inflicted immeasurable suffering on the Russian people.
We will not allow this to be repeated once again!
If the German vassal government, in complicity with the warmongers in Great Britain and France, and led by the United States and NATO, is making plans for a new war of aggression against Russia,
it does so
not in our name!
We say NO to war and violence in international relations and condemn the ongoing warmongering, armaments, and militarisation!
Judgement of the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg, 1946:
“To initiate a war of aggression is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.“Paus John Paul II on 13 January 2003:
“War is never an unavoidable fate. War always signifies a defeat for humanity.“Russian scholar Nikolai Deshatnitshenko in his address on the national day of mourning before the German Parliament on 22 November 2017:
“I sincerely hope that one day human common sense will prevail and the world will never witness war again.“First signatories:
