This Easter, we call on all Russian and Ukrainian soldiers and all politicians, organisers and workers to lay down their arms and refrain from all war efforts. We call for a ceasefire from the Orthodox Good Friday, 14 April, to Easter Monday 2023.
We hope that the Easter Peace, which the front-line soldiers on both sides should celebrate together, will also mark the beginning of political peace negotiations.
For all Christians and people of good will Easter time is the celebration of the triumph of life over death and hope over despair.
The world is on the brink of both nuclear war and a climate crisis of apocalyptic proportions that we can only solve together and in peace.
Let’s support the Easter Peace with vigils and rallies around the world.
