CCC Leader Nelson Chamisa Condemns The Russia, Ukraine War

Opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) has condemned the Russian invasion of Ukraine saying the sovereignty of every state, regardless of size or any other factor, should be respected.

He speaks after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a military operation in Ukraine on Thursday 24 February 2022 with explosions heard soon after in the capital and other parts of the country, prompting outrage from Joe Biden who warned of a “catastrophic loss of life”. 

Putin said in a television announcement shortly before 6:00 am (0300 GMT) in Moscow:

I have made the decision of a military operation…

Whoever would try to stop us and further create threats, to our people, should know that Russia’s response will be immediate and lead you to such consequences that you have never faced in your history.

In response, Chamisa said:

Today the world woke up to grave news of war in Ukraine. This is a sad day for humanity. War is bloodshed, misery & great suffering. In all this, women, children &ordinary citizens are the most vulnerable victims. Peace is fragile and it must be jealously guarded at all times.

Humanity has made great progress over the decades, but we are reminded once again of our capacity for self-destruction. It’s not as if the world has a shortage of problems. It’s utterly uncalled for to start a war when the world is battling a deadly pandemic & climate change.

Only yesterday, the African Union championed the theme of Silencing the Guns. The message could not be more appropriate at this time. We urge all the actors to give dialogue a chance. After all, guns and missiles are ultimately silenced by dialogue and diplomacy.

We subscribe to and support the principles of territorial sovereignty, equality of states, non-intervention and state consent. In this regard, it is absolutely vital to respect and honour the sovereignty of every nation-state regardless of size or any other factor.

Some said this was probably Chamisa’s opportunity to tell the United States to lift “illegal sanctions on Zimbabwe” since the Southern African country is “not an extension of the US or any other nation.”
