In a message to the UN on September 25, 1961, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy said “Humanity must end war, or war will end humanity”.


On February 24, 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine. The UN Human Rights Directorate announced that the death toll of civilians since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine has risen to 331 victims, including 19 children, plus 675 injured. But this is a budget that, confirms the UN.


Attacking a nuclear power plant is a war crime: the US embassy in Kiev tweets it after the events at the Ukrainian plant in Zaporizhzhia. “It is a war crime to attack a nuclear power plant. Putin’s bombing of Europe’s largest nuclear power plant takes his reign of terror one step further ”.


War crimes do not stop only at the nuclear power plant, but with the use that according to observers, Russia is throwing cluster bombs. In this regard, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at a press conference saying he was satisfied with the investigation by the International Criminal Court because, he said, “We have noted the use of cluster bombs and there have been reports of the use of other types of weapons that would be in violation of international law “. And again “we must ensure that President Putin and the President of Belarus are held accountable for what they do”. If Putin is confirmed and convicted, he may no longer be able to leave Russia.


The reaction of the whole world was exceptional, first the Poles and then gradually everyone immediately took action to help people, mostly women and children, giving them refreshment and in many cases a place to stay. In a week since the start of the Russian offensive, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), one million have already set off. Most cross the border into Poland or Romania. But the number is set to rise to a maximum of 7 million refugees.


The official website JW. org reports some news: There are more than 129,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses along with their children living in Ukraine. The Witnesses have organized 27 Relief Committees to provide humanitarian aid to our fellow believers.

In a display of Christian love, the Witnesses are making every effort to provide practical and emotional support for one another and others during this time of crisis. What has been done to take care of the witnesses arriving from Ukraine? After providing for their most urgent needs, local Witnesses welcome their fellow believers to Kingdom Halls and Assembly Halls, local community centers of worship, among others. There, further help is organized: the Witnesses take care of food, hygiene and clothing. They receive physical, emotional, and spiritual help.


A Polish news site reports this statement: “We are on duty 24 hours a day to provide practical help, but we also provide much needed emotional and spiritual help in the face of this situation. Jehovah’s Witnesses all over Poland are reporting neighborhoods where our fellow believers in Ukraine can live, usually indefinitely, as long as they need to, ”says Robert Warda, a local representative of Jehovah’s Witnesses.


And again “Already in the first minutes of our duty, we had the opportunity to meet our fellow believers from Ukraine. Despite the language barrier, we communicated in the language of love. Simple gestures, smiles, hugs and the feeling that these people are now safe – it’s an incredible feeling not only to talk about Christian love, but also to be able to show it in practice”, says Grzegorz, one of the Witnesses who is waiting for fellow students. faith at the border crossing of Korczowa.


The Russian government, invading a sovereign country, bringing pain and death to a free people, wants to impose his will, just as it did with minorities in Russia. Jehovah’s Witnesses suffer incredible, unacceptable persecution, with completely fabricated accusations, Putin says they are dangerous subversive, they respond in the way the world knows them, with acts of love, such as what is happening in Poland towards others and their Ukrainian brothers.


Russia has agreed on humanitarian corridors, but we know what it means, “let’s empty and then raze”, whatever happens, Jehovah’s Witnesses will remain at the forefront to help their brothers and all those who need them.
