My country has become a battlefield for major powers – Ukrainian peace activist

End the war now

As officials in Moscow threaten to replace the democratically elected Ukrainian government and Russian forces appear set to overpower Ukrainian defences, is this the end of an independent Ukraine?

Democracy Now! speaks with Ukrainian peace activist Nina Potarska, who fled the country after Russian troops entered Ukraine on Thursday, even as her daughter with Covid had to stay behind.

Potarska is participating in CodePink’s international emergency online rally on Saturday to advocate against war and against Nato membership for Ukraine. “I feel that my country now is like a battlefield for all other countries’ ambition,” Potarska says. “We want to be in peace.”
