4 Members of European Youth Parliament in Ukraine and in Russia call for peace and share young European perspectives on the current situation, Berlin, 23rd February 2022

Following the violation of international law by the Russian Federation, the EYP, together with the Schwarzkopf Foundation, published the voices of our network members calling for peace. Read the full press release here.

“Today I am just tired of this waiting and got back to my business as usual with a packed emergency suitcase standing ready at my door just in case. The Western leaders should listen to the voices of active European citizens in support of Ukraine to preserve peace. It’s time to take the threat of war seriously not wait for any further escalation. Strict measures deterring the aggressor must be installed immediately. In solidarity with Ukraine, the European countries must punish the aggressor for encircling our country with thousands of armed troops and inciting fear of their hypothetical actions.“, declares Kristina, Alumna of EYP Ukraine.
