Russia has launched full-scale invasion into neighbouring country Ukraine. The reason given by Russian president Putin was that Ukraine's quest to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) would lead to Eastward expansion of NATO, posing a threat to Russia. We believe that Ukraine, as a sovereign nation, has the right to choose her political path and to seek to join any international coalition she sees fit. There is no indication that NATO intends to attack Russia. Taking the initiative to invade a neighboring country just because of a potential "threat" is unjustifiable and barbaric. The attack is not only against Ukraine but also against democracy itself, because the attack aims to topple her democratic system which is a clear choice of her people. Ukrainians are fighting bravely. President Volodymyr Zelensky refused to flee and stayed in the capital Kyiv to fight with the citizens. We salute him and the courage of Ukrainian people. Here are a few things we can contribute. These are the ways you can make a donation. You can also sign this Avaaz petition to world governments for stopping the war. Let us stand with Ukraine. Let us stand with democracy!
俄羅斯已全面入侵鄰國烏克蘭。俄羅斯總統普京給出的理由是，烏克蘭尋求加入北大西洋公約組織將導致北約東擴，對俄羅斯構成威脅。我們認為，作為一個獨立主權國家，烏克蘭有權選擇自己的政治道路，並尋求加入任何她認為合適的國際聯盟。不見得北約有意攻俄，只因潛在「威脅」而主動攻打鄰國，是理據不足的橫蠻侵略。俄羅斯的襲擊不僅針對烏克蘭，還針對民主本身，因為今次襲擊旨在推翻她的民主制度，她人民的明確選擇。烏克蘭人正在勇敢地奮戰。總統澤倫斯基拒絕出逃，選擇留守首都基輔與人民一起戰鬥。我們向他和烏克蘭人民的勇氣致敬。以下是你我可以做的一點東西。這些是你可捐款的途徑。你亦可以在此 Avaaz 請願書上簽名敦促各國政府協助結束戰爭。讓我們與烏克蘭站在一起。讓我們與民主站在一起！
