We Appeal to the Mothers and Wives of Soldiers of Russian Federation

We, the Women of Georgia, mothers and wives of Georgians, Russians, Ossetians, Abkhaz, Armenians, Azeri, Ukrainians, Kurds, Assyrians, Jews, Greeks and of many others; 

We appeal to you, to the mothers who have suffered profound grief of Afghanistan and Chechnya. 

The Women of Russia, do you hear us? 

We have not yet started mourning the dead, as still we have to save those alive. 

The Women of Russia!!! Today we share the same pain, the same woe!!! We together face the death, we together look into her eyes through the eyes of our sons, husbands and fathers.

And this pain is worse than death; you know this!

The Women of Russia! Mothers and wives of Russian Soldiers!!!

We, the Women of Georgia call upon you to raise your voices against the bloodshed and brutality of war. 

Let us, wherever we are, with our wounded hearts, unite and together raise our voices to hold up to the thread of peace, which will go around the world and shiver the mother earth – our harbor.  

We address you to extend a helping hand to protect our children. Today we forward you an appeal and broken thread of peace with the hope that you will stretch it out and it will help us to avert this senseless war.
