History tells us that wars cause irreversible and unimaginable loss. Civilians are killed; homes, schools and places of worship destroyed. People need peace, stability and dignity more than anything else. Russia must stop the attack on Ukraine immediately.— Malala (@Malala) February 24, 2022
For nearly half a decade, my family called Kyiv home. The people of Ukraine have every right to their sovereignty, without unprovoked aggression from their neighbors. Praying for all human lives & hoping for better sense to prevail. War is never the answer. #RussiaUkraineConflict— Momina Mustehsan (@MominaMustehsan) February 24, 2022
Heartbroken to heart about Ukraine, praying for everyone’s safety. ❤️
(& before you get at me I am heartbroken for Kashmiris, Palestinians, Syrians, Uyghur etc too. I tweet about them all the time. Please sar na khao)— Ushna Shah (@ushnashah) February 24, 2022

If the Russian / Ukrainian conflict evokes a sense of fairness n justice , a humane desire to protect the weaker in them , Why all of the western powers are totally indiffrent towards Saudi carpet bombings and atrocities on a small country like Yemen .— Javed Akhtar (@Javedakhtarjadu) February 23, 2022
