Which side are you on?

  At the U.N. General Assembly 66 countries called urgently for diplomacy to end the war in Ukraine through peaceful negotiations. 

Bangladesh - “We want the end of the Russia-Ukraine war. Due to sanctions and counter-sanctions, …the entire mankind, including women and children, is punished."

India - " We are often asked whose side we are on. And our answer, each time, is straight and honest. India is on the side of peace and will remain firmly there...We are on the side that calls for dialogue and diplomacy as the only way out. We are on the side of those struggling to make ends meet, even as they stare at escalating costs of food, fuel and fertilizers."

Senegal - “We call for de-escalation and a cessation of hostilities in Ukraine, as well as for a negotiated solution, to avoid the catastrophic risk of a potentially global conflict.”

Saint Lucia - We call upon all parties involved to immediately end the conflict in Ukraine, by undertaking immediate negotiations to permanently settle all disputes in accordance with the principles of the United Nations.”
