|To the leaders of the
United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Ukraine and Russia.
I know how important the sovereignty of the territory that is rightfully
ours is. Our lands are constantly threatened by invaders who take from
us more than a piece of land, they take part of our lives. Thinking
about it, I remember with sadness in my heart the suffering that the
Ukrainian people have been experiencing for months. An invasion without
plausible motives that kills innocent civilians and takes land with
brutality as was done in the past. However, despite this absurdity, I
fear that something more serious is approaching.
Climate change could destroy the Earth for
centuries to come if nothing is done today, but a much greater danger
could be close at hand that seriously threatens our planet. A nuclear
war can terribly stain human history with blood and pain. If a vine is
stretched without ceasing, the moment of rupture will arrive that will
break it, breaking the stability that it sustained. The escalation of
the war in Ukraine is being constant and a point of no return will
surely happen if this war is not stopped immediately.
So, I think that the strategy of military
aid to Ukraine aimed at retaking the occupied territories will prolong
the war to the point of no return. After all the consequences that the
invasion generated for Russia, Putin will not accept to lose the
Ukrainian territories that he illegitimately annexed. He does not bluff
and will go to the extreme making use of atomic arsenal in order not to
lose the war. If that happens, humanity will be in serious danger of
extinction. Today, our planet is more threatened than the Amazon.
Therefore, Mr President Biden, if the worst happens, future generations
will hold not only Putin responsible for a global nuclear holocaust, but
also you, President Zelensky and the leaders who support you in
maintaining and feeding this conflict with the intention of
strengthening the Ukraine to retake stolen territories.
In the future, when Putin is no longer in
power, his successors will understand that the annexations promoted by
him were a big mistake and will certainly return all territory belonging
to Ukraine, including Crimea. Therefore, I suggest an armistice with the
- Stop military aid to Ukraine with the
aim of retaking territories annexed by Russia. This strategy will
not make Putin lose the war and will only add fuel to the fire by
escalating the conflict to the nuclear level. We know that the
consequences would be disastrous for the entire world.
- Establish a ceasefire by freezing the
current territorial state with the Ukrainian territories annexed as
occupied by Russia. Ukraine has already suffered a lot from this war.
For the sake of the Ukrainian people, this conflict must stop
- Increase sanctions against Russia.
All possible: economic, scientific, cultural and sporting. Isolate
Russia as much as possible. A situation that would be reversed only
when the entire annexed territory was returned to Ukraine in full.
It may take a few years but one day it will happen.
- Establish February 27 as a date to be
remembered by everyone in defense of Ukraine's sovereignty. All
world leaders who are on the side of Ukraine and the truth would
remind Russia on that day that all Ukrainian territory taken since
2014 must be returned to its rightful owner.
- All world leaders who are on Ukraine's
side, as well as government officials and artists, would follow the
example of Roman senator Cato, the Elder (although his intention was
not worthy) and end every speech or any public demonstration with
the phrase: "Russia, return the territory that belongs to Ukraine!"
I believe that these few points, which can
be improved and added to by others, will be able to bring peace and hope
for a better world. I ask all government officials who are directly and
indirectly involved in this conflict to think about the urgency for
peace. Especially President Vladimir Putin whose birthday is the same
day that Catholics celebrate the day of Our Lady of the Rosary (7
October). A curious fact is that Our Lady of Fatima, that of the famous
Third Secret of Fatima is the same Lady of the Rosary, to whom Pope
Francis consecrated Russia and Ukraine on March 25 this year..
Finally, I ask that wherever they are,
Mandela, Martin Luther King, Ghandhi and Jesus guide the rulers of all
nations to always seek the path of peace, tolerance and diplomacy in the
resolution of conflicts between nations.
