The True Cost of the Ukraine-Russia War

The devastation visited on Ukraine is shocking. The suffering, lives lost, crimes against humanity, human rights abuses, gender-based violence, destruction of infrastructure, environmental degradation, food insecurity, destruction of families, homes, livelihoods and communities are appalling.

The economic effects of the war on Ukraine are incalculable.

The threat of a nuclear holocaust is real, with its catastrophic consequences for the future of our world. The reckless rhetoric and grandstanding of militarism and the absence of any meaningful efforts at diplomacy cannot deliver lasting peace and security.

Strategic and political differences must be addressed by observing international law and through mediation to reach a negotiated settlement. And women activists are pushing harder than ever to have their voices heard.

The effects of this wasteful war on the climate, the environment and food supplies will impact for far longer than the lifetimes of the world leaders who are responsible.

We seek a different future, we seek peace-building solutions… connecting to a community who want to make a change. This is why Scottish CND and Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) are joining forces to host a webinar on the true cost of the war in Ukraine.
